HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco joined a number of other royals in recent days in the Persian Gulf state of Abu Dhabi for the World Future Energy Summit. He discussed his favorite topic and the concerns of future energy sources and talked to some bright locals who have come up with innovative ideas to produce energy such as a handicapped Emirati who designed a solar-powered wheelchair. The Sovereign Prince also was given an exclusive tour of Ferrari World, a new 86,000 m2 theme park on Yas Island just off the coast of Abu Dhabi.
