Solar Impulse at NASDAQ Opening Bell Ceremony

André and Bertrand were invited to ring NASDAQ’s opening bell this Tuesday morning together with Thomas Werner, CEO of SunPower - Solar Impulse partner and solar cell provider. 

After a flattering introduction about “making history Across America” by NASDAQ’s Vice President Global Corporate Client, David Wicks, André and Bertrand shared Solar Impulse’s message about the potential of renewable energies and the need to capitalize on a clean tech-powered future.

“Solar Impulse is meant to inspire people, to bring new technologies to the public. If we want a cleaner and better world, technology will play that role; that’s why we believe that NASDAQ is a really good airport for Solar Impulse” said Bertrand finishing off on a humorist note.

“The technologies on our solar plane are designed to be energy efficient and light. These technologies are slowly finding their way into other applications, creating profit – and that’s what will make the clean tech industry grow into the future.” Concluded André.

A euphoric yet emotional moment for the team as Solar Impulse was streamed on the NASDAQ tower and picked up by all the major financial television networks. Waving our hands and yelling “Solar Impulse!” in front of the cameras, it finally hit us: the seemingly “mission impossible” officially turned “mission accomplished”.
