Does anyone know if he has installed some sort of energy saving or sustainable efforts in the palace?

Is this just PA treating himself to another toy, or would the Lexus really make a positive difference to the environment?
The conversion adds security and a LOT of weight. That's the reason the vehicle needs 445 HP. To his credit, PA prefers this to a Mercedes-Benz (or whatever) that is not electric. From my reading about this vehicle, the electric will kick in on the highway (not as much power is required), and the V8 kicks in when needed (acceleration).

There are relevant links in the Prince Albert Foundation thread.

For instance, he has had solar panels fitted at the Foundation's headquarters in Monaco.

Ah, I love reading about Albert's commitment to the environment, he doesn't just talk, he does, and it shows in his actions! Reminds me of Prince Charles in this way, I admire them both in this aspect. :)

Probably not. The "Flash or substance" thead was started before the PAF was established.
