«With each of their great "firsts", the explorers of the last century constantly pushed back the limits of the impossible. Today, the drive to make new discoveries must go on, with the aim of improving the quality of life on our planet.»

MASDAR

HOST PARTNER IN ABU DHABI

 

Masdar is Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company which works to advance the development, commercialization and deployment of clean energy technologies and solutions.

The company serves as a link between today’s fossil fuel economy and the energy economy of the future. Wholly owned by the Mubadala Development Company PJSC, the strategic investment company of the Government of Abu Dhabi, Masdar is dedicated to the Emirates’ long-term vision for the future of energy and water.

The relationship between Masdar and Solar Impulse started in 2003 from a common perspective shared between the UAE leadership and the Solar Impulse founders Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg. The goal is to promote technological values together to preserve the planet’s resources, in a bid to encourage political leaders and organisations to adopt cleaner and more efficient technologies.

Masdar has been tasked by the government with investing in and advancing the renewable energy and clean technology industry both domestically and internationally. 

 

“Abu Dhabi, Masdar and Solar Impulse have in common a pioneering spirit, a long-term vision and a desire to explore new horizons. We share a commitment to foster the development of technological advances in alternative energy sources in order to contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable future.” 
H. E. Dr. Sultan Ahmad Al Jaber, UAE minister of state and chairman of Masdar.

«Just imagine your energy reserves increasing during flight! To make this dream a reality, we had to make maximum use of every single watt supplied by the sun, storing any surplus in our batteries.»
