What is the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions?
The WAES is a global network initiated by the Solar Impulse Foundation federating the main actors in the field of clean technologies and efficiency. As an independent global consortium, the Alliance advocates for agile governance in the ecological transition, free from traditional constraints. It connects stakeholders, amplifies positive impacts, and addresses barriers to implementation head-on, resolutely dedicated to pioneering a world in which efficiency is the driving force behind ecological balance and economic health.
We are committed to a clean energy transition. But this can only happen if we break down silos, if all those who share this commitment work together and focus on tangible and efficient solutions. That is why I support the World Alliance.Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President European Commission
