True to its commitment to contribute to the future of energy in the Philippines, Solane recently partnered with Pilipinas Shell for the Shell Eco-Marathon Asia 2015, the ultimate energy-efficiency challenge where more than 100 student teams from all across Asia, the Middle East, and Australia went head-to-head with their energy-efficient vehicle innovations.

Solane took the opportunity to leverage on the spirit of forward-thinking among youth engineers in the event held on a street circuit at Rizal Park by promoting LPG as a safer source of power. “We pride ourselves in pioneering innovative LPG solutions that continually strive to meet our customers’ diverse energy needs for their homes and their businesses,” shared Isla LPG Corporation chief executive officer Ruben Domingo. “Through this partnership, we’ll be able to help people have a better perspective in the use of LPG.”
