The group PlanetSolar has announced a sea voyage using a vessel entirely powered by solar photovoltaic energy. Their project is a self-described (R)evolution that explores possible technologies intended to evolve into use with hybrid vehicles.
They compare their boat to a swan, as it makes no noise, no pollution and moves gracefully, thanks to its innovative, contemporary design. PlanetSolar has appointed a skipper, who is responsible for sailing the swan around the world. Visit the PlanetSolar website, entirely powered by solar energy, for the route and more information on the boat, those involved, and their project.
