Bertrand Piccard, the man who flew around the world in a solar-powered airplane, will be taking another trip around the world. This time he will show governments 1,000 innovations that together will make it possible to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by half.

The World Alliance is committed to selecting #1000solutions that can profitably protect the environment and bring them to policymakers, business leaders, and decision-makers to help them adopt more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies.

Assessed by independent experts, the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label serves as a credible marker of quality to decision-makers in business and governments.

“Exploration is a state of mind. If we want to innovate and achieve impossible goals, we have to understand that the only obstacle to succeed is our mindset. It’s the accumulation of believes and habits that keep us prisoner of old ways of thinking.”

Bertrand Piccard Chairman, Solar Impulse Foundation

What do the solutions have in common?

Innovations must be clean, efficient, and profitable; reach at-scale prototype testing, and contribute to the achievement of at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals.

We support the Solar Impulse Foundation and their ethos, which sets out to prove that solving climate change — rather than an expensive problem — is a fantastic market opportunity. Together, we are shaping a new economic system based on replacing polluting products and processes with efficient and sustainable ones — a system in which we consume better, rather than consuming more.

Zeigo is delighted that our renewable energy platform has become one of the #1000solutions following a rigorous independent selection process.
