Palma.—WWF Solar, a sun-fuelled catamaran, set sail from Alicante yesterday for a two month journey along the Spanish Mediterranean coast, raising awareness for the need to move towards a 100% renewable world.

The boat, a 14 m catamaran equipped with a 65 square meter solar panel roof, is powered solely by the light of the sun.

As an “ambassador in motion” for WWF campaign “Renowatio, muévete con el Sol” - RenoWatio, Move with the Sun – the boat will travel the Spanish coast stopping in the main coastal towns highlighting the benefits of renewable energy resources among locals and tourists. “It's essential that Spain leads the way when it comes to changing the current energetic model. We can't keep on relying on fossil fuels, so it's crucial to count on society's support and trust in renewable energies” explained Juan Carlos del Olmo, Chief Executive at WWF Spain.
