Kapaw Videos feature Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions


Three months after the launch of the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label, Members of the World Alliance are actively submitting their solutions to be labelled.  Once a Solution is labelled, the Solar Impulse Foundation builds awareness around it and the potential impact that solution can have for the environment.

In order to promote the Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions, we collaborate with media. Recently, we started a collaboration with Kapaw, a Swiss online media particularly popular with younger generations and specialised on content distributed through facebook and instagram. Kapaw brings insight into today’s world various burning topics by creating impactful stories in videos.

Aware of its audience’s interest in the protection of the environment, Kapaw was motivated to work with Solar Impulse to highlight clean technology solutions. The aim of this collaboration is to show that climate change can be addressed by clean technologies existing today. 

“The whole world is affected by global warming and its challenges and, as a media company, we know that we also have an important role to play. Kapaw shared Bertrand Piccard’s vision for his #1000solutions project and we wanted to collaborate with the Solar Impulse Foundation to be able to contribute by highlighting initiatives that have the potential to improve our world” said Geoffrey Moret, CEO of Kapaw.

Sharing these values pushed both organisations to join forces and created a series called “GreenRush” with each episode featuring a Solar Impulse Efficient Solution in a 2 minutes video.

Discover the first two episodes of GreenRush:

The first video addresses the issue of water resources by presenting Osmosun a desalination plant that functions only with solar energy and without battery. 


For its second video, Kapaw chose to present Woodoo’s solution, a translucent, extra resistant, fireproof wood made by replacing a component of wood called ligning with a bio-based polymer.
