The Dutch showed the world that they know solar power when they won the World Solar Car Challenge in Australia this past September (beating out the U-M team, by the way, who did a stellar job in winning the U.S. competition). Now that they've been lauded as an expert in the field of solar power, however, the solar car team's sponsor, Delft University of Technology, wants to move onto projects that have more social impact. On the table is a hybrid-electric or possibly just electric "Superbus" capable of traveling 155 mph.

All is not lost for the solar car team, however — Dutch energy firm Nuon will fill the role of major sponsor for next year's Nuna 4. The Nuna 3, which won the 2005 competition, is pictured.
