AREVA & KV Racing Team Stay on Track to Support Nuclear Clean Air Energy
AREVA, a leader in nuclear energy and a significant, growing player in the renewable energies sector, is a sponsor of the Nuclear Clean Air Energy IndyCar race team. Simona De Silvestro drives the No. 78 Nuclear Clean Air Energy – KV Racing Technology Chevrolet car.
“The Nuclear Clean Air Energy car is a great vehicle for raising awareness of forward-looking clean energy technologies like nuclear power,” said Michael Rencheck, President and Chief Executive Officer, AREVA Inc. “Our partnership with Simona and the Nuclear Clean Air Energy Indy race team facilitates broader public discussions about clean energy and the importance of STEM education for the future of our industry.”
“Similar to the energy industry, STEM is a critical part of our success at the racetrack,” said De Silvestro. AREVA is helping to make De Silvestro’s car and the Nuclear Clean Air Energy race team more environmentally friendly by offsetting their emissions for the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series season. De Silvestro will also be featured on IndyCar 36 on May 24th on NBC Sport Network (10:30 p.m. ET).
Be sure to cheer on De Silvestro this weekend in the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500 on ABC (11:00 a.m. ET).
