  • Solar Impulse 2: Flying the flag for solar power

    In its round-the-world tour, the plane Solar Impulse 2 has become a showcase for Sun-powered technology, featuring innovations which could have a bright commercial future. The plane can store enough energy in its batteries to fly through the night. "The plane has the wingspan of a 747 but only the weight of a car - it had to be designed with the principle of efficiency first and foremost," said Adnan Amin, head of IRENA. The breakthrough has been made possible by several technological advances by industry partners in the project.
