On February 15th, 2009, the Brussels-based International Polar Foundation (IPF) officially inaugurated the new Princess Elisabeth Antarctica Station, the very first Antarctic research station ever designed and built to run entirely on renewable solar and wind energies. The new "zero emission" Belgian research station is the only research platform completed during the fourth International Polar Year (IPY) and constitutes Belgium's main contribution to IPY-4.
An article about the Princess Elisabeth Station achievement has been published online the International Polar Foundation's Sciencepoles website.
