Bolstered by the personal commitment of Prince Albert II of Monaco, his Foundation and the Government of Monaco’s involvement in promoting the transition towards low-carbon energy, the Principality of Monaco actively supported the Solar Impulse project and housed the mission’s strategic centre in the Rainier III Auditorium until its final landing in Abu Dhabi on 26th July 2016.Read more
