WORLD ALLIANCE FOR EFFICIENT SOLUTIONS
Selecting 1000 solutions that are profitable to protect the environment
Following the success of the first solar flight around the World, the Solar Impulse Foundation has launched the second phase of its action: selecting #1000 solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way, and bring them to decision makers to encourage them to adopt much more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.
AIMING FOR 1000 SOLUTIONS
Bertrand Piccard’s exploits recognized by the Society of Explorers and Society of Geography
When I was flying around the world in my solar airplane, I remember looking at the sun that was giving energy to my four electric motors and their huge propellers. There was no noise, no pollution, no fuel... and I could fly forever. At a certain moment I thought ‘this is science fiction, I’m in the future.’ And then I realized, ‘no, it’s wrong, I’m in the present; this is what the technologies of today already allow me to do. It’s the rest of the world that is in the past, with old and inefficient devices’.”
THE WORLD ALLIANCE...
The World Alliance brings together the main actors in the field of clean technologies in order to create synergies that will ultimately speed-up the implementation of clean and profitable solutions which have the potential to address the environmental challenges of today.
...FOR EFFICIENT SOLUTIONS
Efficient Solutions are not limited to the production of renewable energy. They encompass products, services, clean technologies and processes that are profitable and sustain economic growth, while protecting the environment and optimising the use of natural resources.
