Monaco Government Update 20 Dec

Prince Albert has played a major part in the One Planet Summit, held in Paris, which marked two years since the Paris Agreement on climate change. Its objective was to reflect on ways to innovate, support and accelerate the common struggle against climate change, and with a particular emphasis on finance. The Sovereign Prince’s keynote address focused on oceans, marine protected areas, coastal ecosystems, fisheries, and the protection of the high seas.

On Wednesday, Prince Albert inspected the catamaran Energy Explorer which is due to depart Monaco on a six year mission, stopping at 101 ports in 50 countries. The catamaran itself, runs totally on renewable energy including on-board hydrogen, solar panels and wind turbines. The boat is an ocean version of the Solar Impulse project, which was based in Monaco, and completed a round-the-world flight using only renewable energy also.
