Energy Observer is an experimental boat for energy transition. It was initiated and developed by Victorien Erussard and Frédéric Dahirel, two seasoned and passionate sailors. It is sponsored by Nicolas Hulot (Chairman of the Nicolas Hulot Foundation for Nature and Humanity and Special Envoy of the President of the French Republic for the Protection of the Planet) and Florence Lambert (Director of Liten, the Innovation Laboratory for New Energy Technologies and Nanomaterials of CEA Tech). This 101 foot (30.5m) catamaran, developed by CEA (the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission), is totally energy-sufficient and is the first boat to use a complete hydrogen chain coupled with renewable energies.
As a powerful symbol of energy transition, Energy Observer will sail around the world for six years seeking innovative solutions for the planet. On board, scientists, researchers, engineers, journalists, artists and all those who have chosen to take action, will discover innovative, concrete and applicable projects, both small and large-scale, so we can all engage in the third industrial revolution: that of renewable energies.”
