Yet Morocco has to import roughly 96 percent of its fossil fuel, which is both costly and politically destabilizing. So it comes as no surprise that learning institutions around the North African country are seeking solar solutions to something that has become as intrinsic to Moroccan society as camels and couscous: cars.

Moroccan students unveiled plans to build a solar-powered electric vehicle, allAfrica reports. Students that belong to the Energy Club of the Mohammadia School of Engineers presented their ambitions to attendees of the third “Power Day” held in Rabat last week – a conference that has increasingly incorporated renewable energy into its vision for the future.

While very few details have been revealed (such as when will the car be ready, who will fund the technology, and do they intend for the concept to be scaled for commercial applications, the Mohammadia engineering students intend to build lightweight vehicles that take their power from the sun.

Photovoltaic cells are expected to be used to charge the vehicle’s batteries. It has an electric engine.
