Monaco is all about renewable energy, with the energy transition National Pact well underway, we can see solar panels adorning the roofs of many new buildings. But there’s one cutting edge green energy source that remains hidden underground. Beneath the new Larvotto esplanade and in the Condamine district lies a power source which many people are unfamiliar with, one with a tongue-twisting name: “Thalassothermy”.
