UNESCO Boarding the Energy Observer – the First Hydrogen-Powered Vessel

The Energy Observer counts on UNESCO’s support in the fulfilment of its mission of promoting renewable energy sources and raising awareness. The vessel will sail from 2017 to 2020, making 101 stops in ports, national parks and big cities worldwide and not using a single gram of fossil fuel. Powered by renewable energy sources and hydrogen, the Energy Observer will leave its home port of Saint-Malo in the spring, and afterwards embark from Paris on a journey around the world, for the purpose of testing transitional energy solutions in real conditions, raising awareness and promoting sustainable development research.
