His Serene Highness Prince Albert II, Sovereign Prince of Monaco
“Over the past two centuries, economic development has unfortunately taken place to the detriment of the preservation of our environment and we are now seeing the consequences, in terms of climate change and loss of biodiversity in particular.
The pursuit of economic growth that generates social progress can now only be achieved through the implementation of solutions that are entirely innovative, sustainable and respectful of our environment.
The approach of Kevin Desmond and Jeff Butler to describe a number of these possibilities on a web platform can only be encouraged. It will allow as many people as possible to become more aware that, as has been demonstrated for electric vehicles, alternatives exist and can be implemented to ensure a better tomorrow for future generations.”
HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco established The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (PA2F) in 2006: dedicated to the protection of the environment and the promotion of sustainable development on a global scale.

Awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2019, with Akira Yoshino “for the development of lithium-ion batteries”
Over forty years ago, when we discovered our particular solution: to improve and commercialise the lithium-ion battery, we could never have predicted the universal role it would play in the development of computing and transportation.
We are therefore proud that a great many of these, including AI, the “internet of things” and next generation wireless networks, involve power from the lithium ion battery.
We hope that our solution will let all of us work together to build a cleaner environment, make our planet more sustainable, and help mitigate global warming, thereby leaving a cleaner legacy to our children and grandchildren.
We welcome this website for its practical presentation of a very wide array of solutions which are being used or could be developed to do just that.

It is fascinating to see what is neat each day. But I also long to see all 366 solutions. This is a brilliant idea and my hope is that many people will read it and take action from it.
