« Efficient solution by Solar Impulse », the label we are proud of!

For those who do not yet know the stimulating adventure of Solar Impulse, you should know that it began in 2015 with the first round-the-world flight in an airplane with no fuel or polluting emissions during the flight: 16 months to cover 43,041 km in 17 stages solely thanks to solar energy, and to convince political and economic leaders of the merits of clean energy. A project that may seem crazy, but which commands respect!

Since then, the Solar Impulse Foundation has created a label to identify 1000+ solutions that are both clean and profitable. The goal? To try to meet ecological challenges in an economically sustainable way.

Sustainable economic growth is possible

The challenge was launched at the end of 2016: identify 1,000 solutions around the world to prove to economic and political decision-makers that renewable energy and sustainable development technologies can also rhyme with economic efficiency. The Solar Impulse Foundation then created the Efficient Solution label, a certification awarded after an evaluation process by independent experts, recognizing the efficiency and environmental impact of a product, process, or service. This objective was achieved by April 2021 [1].

The Solar Impulse Foundation has recently launched a collaboration with the European Commission (EC) to create an equivalence between the EC selection process and the criteria evaluated for the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label. The goal is to give more visibility and credibility to sustainable solutions, and to help innovators connect with potential stakeholders such as investors, customers, companies and cities.

The many challenges TEQOYA faces

TEQOYA submitted our application in December 2021 by submitting its air purifiers to the experts of the Efficient solution label. In collaboration with renowned institutions, each solution is screened using a rigorous, certified and neutral methodology based on five criteria:

  • credibility
  • scalability
  • environmental benefits
  • economic incentive for the customer
  • and vendor profitability.

TEQOYA & Solar Impulse

We received the answer from the experts in June 2022: TEQOYA is now part of Solar Impulse's effective solutions. Much more than a certification, we see it as being part of something bigger and integrating a group of companies for whom the issue of environmental protection is at the heart of the social and economic challenge. Today, the entire Teqoya team wishes to share this pride and enthusiasm with you.
