Pioneers and adventurers of solar energy
|Language of origin
Since the 1960s, solar energy has enabled people to envision a sustainable and environmentally friendly future. To continue dreaming and exploring the world, some pioneers have turned away from fossil fuels to find another source of mobility. Ingenious do-it-yourselfers and brilliant researchers, often surrounded by enthusiastic teams, they have demonstrated the incredible potential of solar energy through their incredible solar-powered machines. On land, on water or in the air, photovoltaic energy has thus been applied through visionary projects.
From the first solar car to current cars, from Solar Craft I, the first solar boat in history, to PlanetSolar, a gigantic solar catamaran that completed the first solar-powered round-the-world trip, from Solar One’s first flight in 1978 to Solar Impulse’s aerial round-the-world trip, discover the most significant episodes in the history of solar adventure.
