The Solar Impulse Foundation launches the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions

Bonn, Germany - And the countdown to select 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 officially launched the second phase of its action –the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions– during COP23, with the goal of selecting 1000 solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way, and bring them to decision makers at COP24 to encourage them to adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies. The Constituent Assembly of the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions took place yesterday in the Bonn Zone of COP23, launching its flagship action: the selection of 1000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way by COP24 in 2018, with HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco starting the countdown on stage. This is a major milestone for the World Alliance, which at present already counts 474 Members that together combine more than 500 potential solutions. Examples of potential solutions already submitted by Members range from deep water offshore turbines, solar desalination plants, containers to transform organic waste into energy, air filters that capture C02 emissions and turn them into renewable fuels, hydrogen-based devices that can be added on cars to increase fuel efficiency, to free electric car chargers. Over the next year, all submitted solutions will be assessed by independent scientific and financial Experts following a structured methodology designed to evaluate their deployability, sustainability and viability.
