In 2004 Louis Palmer started the solartaxi project. Since his childhood he wanted to go around the world without polluting and destroying planet Earth with fossil fuels. With the help of four different Swiss universities he managed to build the car, find supporters and sponsors and take off for a 18 month tour across 38 countries. He wanted to show to the world: Yes, we can change from fossil fuels to renewable energies! These new technologies are affordable, reliable and ecological!
