he Princess Elisabeth station will house scientists who’ll probe the subcontinent’s ice layer for answers to climate change. The trendsetting modular station – designed and built by the International Polar Foundation – becomes operational by the end of this year. It will be the world’s first zero emissions polar station, powered by wind turbines and solar panels. Electrolux is supporting the effort with its energy-efficient appliances to meet the daily needs of scientists and researchers working in a tough environment. The Belgian team will set up the station in Brussels in September, where it will be on parade for journalists and the general public (press event on September 5).
