– 56 years-old –
Electric mobility has a long standing history with Paul. 25 years ago, he worked in the field of lithium batteries. Bought in 1995, his first e-bike even had a lead battery! In 2008, he got himself a lithium-based ebike. More recently, he got involved in domestic solar production.
In 2009, he underwent a heart transplant and managed to practice sports again like when he was yonger. In 2013, he climbed a submit over 6000 meters in the Andes mountains, a record for a heart transplantee!
In 2018, in a heartbeat, he becomes the last addition to the Sun Trip adventure. An unusual challenge that will get our hearts racing all around the world…

His Solar Bike
Recumbent trike rather than bicycle, I equipped a Catrike Expedition with 350 Wp Solbian solar panels, 150 Wp of which being on the trike and the remaining 200 Wp bein on a two-wheel trailer.
The lithium-ion battery consists of two Li-MNC 11 Ah at 48 V nominal (54 V max and 42 V min).
A Few Words From The Adventurer…
By using photovoltaics with powerful batteries to travel thousands of kilometers, I somehow experiment with the technologies during of my professional life for a life-size usage. It’s a great pleasure to ride thanks to on-demand battery-stored solar energy. This technology combination has a future ahead, I am convinced.
I am also delighted that my partner Oscaro Power is contributing to domestic solar DIY as an attractive and economic option. As for solar mobility, it’s a bit abstract to the general public, but the Sun Trip is a pilot project.
Yes, this solar trip is a great adventure, with its unknown parameters that are at its core: mechanical issues, changing weather, physical abilities, mental resistance, road hazards, large land areas and cosmopolitan encounters …
The goal I set for myself is to reach Guangzhou (Canton) within 100 days, a realistic goal but already ambitious for me. I got myself ready as best as I could. Although I regularly practice sporting activities since my transplant, I hope that my stamina will suffice. I expect that the right balance of effort and recovery time will be one of the keys to my success.
Finally, I hope to share this adventure with those who will follow me, and thus make you travel with me a little. My participation in the Sun Trip is also an opportunity to promote physical activity among transplanted people and testify on the realities of transplantation. I will get to it during the trip.
