FRANCE 24 English

This week, we take you to Saint-Malo in Brittany as the Energy Observer, the world's first self-sufficient boat, sets sail for a six-year voyage around the world. With solar panels, wind turbines, and a hydrogen fuel cell system, the boat has been transformed into a futuristic flotting smart grid. Beyond promoting the use of renewables, the team looks for innovative tech solutions. Tech24 is an official partner. We'll be following the crew throughout their journey, first as they tour France.
