Alternative Energy


FIM Alternative Energy Working Group (AEWG)

The FIM Alternative Energy Working Group’s mission is to make motorcycle racing greener by integrating the latest technological developments in the field of alternative energy in FIM’s competitions and to prepare the future of motorcycling.

Robert Rasor, FIM Vice-President and AEWG Chairman: “The science and technology of alternative energy sources is changing and advancing at an ever increasing rate. Increasingly policy makers and the public will be looking to motorsport, and motorcycling specifically, as a testing ground for this technology. Motorcycles provide an easily adapted platform of modestly simple design that lends itself well to utilizing many different forms of alternative energy. The use of bio fuels, hybrids, electric and hydrogen is coming faster than most of us believe and it will come to motorcycling first! The FIM, its member federations, officials and volunteers must begin now to receive and accept these technologies in both sport and leisure.”

The core activity of the group is to identify and help to promote projects involving alternative means of propulsion for motorcycles and to use FIM network and tools to disseminate good practices. The group has decided to focus on vehicles running with electric power or using biofuels when they do not compete with food production.

The FIM AEWG is composed of experts from different fields, coming from the motorcycling industry, the sport world and energy research centres.
