The grand finale of Extreme E’s sophomore season is at hand. After four races on three continents across wildly different terrains, the final electric rally racing showdown of 2022 is taking place in the seaside city of Punta del Este in Uruguay. A country that’s leading the way when it comes to renewable energy production and electrification, the country currently generates over 98% of its electricity from renewable sources, primarily wind and hydropower. Extreme E is committed to promoting the switch to electric vehicles and decarbonising transport, which is also a main focus of the Uruguayan government as the next step in its renewable energy journey. Much like Uruguay, Extreme E is actively trialling new renewable energy sources onsite to reduce the need for fossil fuels.
