In July 2022, the Solar Impulse Foundation renewed the Efficient Solution Label awarded to the WAGABOX® technology developed by Waga Energy. “The WAGABOX® is one of the first solutions we labelled. It was in 2018 and we were very enthusiastic about it because it is both logical and ecological. It is practical, credible, it protects the environment and it is financially profitable for Waga Energy and for the client. It went through a very rigorous selection process that is certified by the EY audit firm,” explains Bertrand Piccard, solar aviation pioneer and Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation.
The Solar Impulse Foundation launched the Efficient Solutions initiative following the 2017 United Nations Climate Conference in Bonn (COP23), with the aim of identifying 1,000 technological solutions that contribute to protecting the environment in a financially profitable way. So far, the foundation has awarded the label to more than 1,400 solutions worldwide.
