The instigators of the PlanetSolar project including the Swiss explorer, Raphaël Domjan, created the Foundation in 2007 with a mutual desire to perpetuate the philosophy of this unique, historic adventure.
Today the Foundation is based in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland). It supports various projects in the fields of solar power and energy efficiency. Raphaël Domjan accompanies a team, which is working on different projects based on the three fields of action, i.e. exploration, the humanitarian aspect and the memory of solar adventures.
