Solar Impulse is a Swiss project to build a solar power airplane that is capable of circumnavigation of the earth using only the power of the sun. Masdar City is a city that was built on purpose in the most sustainable way. In fact the city runs on only solar and wind energy and produces more clean energy per day than it consumes.
So there is a lot in common between the Solar Impulse and Masdar City including that the city is a sponsor of the solar airplane project. In this video the team from Solar Impulse visits some of the sights of Masdar City and explains a bit more about what it means to be a sustainable city in the Middle East.
