Exciting news from Sir Richard Branson. A world renowned entrepreneur and maverick, with a flair all of his own, Sir Richard seems to have a finger in most pies – from airlines to mobile to health clubs.
But latest news sees this English business magnate venturing into the realm of solar power.
Over and above his own research, which involves looking at ways in which to harness solar power to tow aircraft on the runway, Sir Richard is also the proud patron for the Solar Impulse Project – the first solar plane able to fly day and night without a single drop of fuel!
With successful test flights already behind them, Solar Impulse 2 will attempt the very first around the world solar flight in 2015.
As ambitious entrepreneurs, passionate about renewable energy, we salute Sir Richard and the Solar Impulse team and look forward to watching it literally take off.
