Solar Impulse - The Future Is No Longer What It Used to Be

Marco Morosini | Posted 02.06.2015 | UK Tech
Marco Morosini

Is Solar Impulse an extravagant toy, built on a whim? Nobody expects photovoltaic to move transport aircraft. Positive spill-over may concern some technical innovation, so it's no coincidence that Google, Swisscom and other big technological industries are among its sponsors. But a viable business model is not the point.

Today, the UAE is the only OPEC nation supplying both traditional and renewable energy to international markets, with a global portfolio that supplies nearly 1 gigawatt of clean power.

The 2014 notion of double points seems to be another construct intended to tie one hand behind Red Bull's back. Should the season be close, double points could be a non-issue but should Red Bull have a decent lead, the final race could marginalize everything they'd accomplished in the season.
