30 Years of IPCC, 24 years of UNFCCC - a lost generation in the fight to stop fossil fuels and ring in the renewable age

Gletscher

The concluded Conference of the Parties (COP) in Katowice, and its background papers and declarations. confirmed that IPCC consensus driven science has been far too conservative in its projections, and that the UNFCCC COP process - while necessary in the absence of alternatives - has increasingly served to falsely assuage fears and placate the coal, oil, gas and nuclear lobbies.

The aim cannot be to limit temperature increase to 'below 2 C degrees' - the target must be 0 degree warming. The catastropic Arctic meltdown and heatwaves were triggered already at 0.8 C degree warming over preindustrial levels. This means the aim must be below-zero emission reductions by reaching full renewable energy supply as soon as possible while regenerating biospheric capacities to absorb the mounting bubble of excess atmospheric greenhouse gases above 280 ppm CO2.

EUROSOLAR President Prof. Droege at the Economist's Southeast Germany Business Investment Summit

Bonn, 04.12.18. In his speech at the Economist's Southeast Germany Business Investment Summit on 3 December 2018 in Berlin EUROSOLAR President Professor Peter Droege challenged the banking and investment community to structure portfolios and assets boldly to renewable energy oriented investments: ‘The dramatic need for Greece, Germany and Europe is to rebuild energy infrastructures from the ground up, to capture the decentralised and innovation strengthening nature of a renewable Europe. This will cut financial and military risk, improve health and local and regional prosperity, detoxify investment strategies, and relief energy investors from their culpability in escalating climate shifts’, Droege said.

Renewable energies: European Solar Prize 2018 awarded to eight winners at the Kunstmuseum Bonn

ESP2018 410x273

Bonn, 17.11.2018. Eight ground-breaking projects for the energy revolution: Today EUROSOLAR awarded the European Solar Prize 2018 to actors from six different nations at the Kunstmuseum Bonn. The prize winners from the fields of education, urban planning, architecture, social affairs and industry are making a contribution to the regenerative and decentralised energy supply in Europe with forward-looking projects. The prize was awarded, for example, for a production hall in Switzerland with a perfectly integrated photovoltaic system to meet the energy needs for the airplane production, a solar electric car ferry operating on the Mosel on the German-Luxembourgian border and for the Israeli-Palestinian NGO Comet-ME. It supplies around 4,000 people in Palestine who have no access to the supply grid with renewable energy and clean water.

  • Resolution: "The time for the rapid and full renewable energy transition is now"

    ES Resolution2017 web

    On the first Saturday in May, the EUROSOLAR Delegates’ Assembly met in the EUROSOLAR head office in Bonn and passed their determined resolution on the future of energy. More than 30 delegates from ten countries got together to discuss the obstacles and opportunities of the fast and full renewable energy transition.

  • Campaign "No Stop of the Energy Transition!"

    EUROSOLAR Germany published the Campaign "Kein Stopp der Energiewende!" (No Stop of the Energy Transition) in March/April 2016. Thanks to the generous support of the members, the campaign was published in nationwide newspapers in the middle of April. Further information as well as the text in German can be found on the EUROSOLAR-website in German.

    The energy transition meets the desire of the majority of our society, secures the future of our innovative economy and creates hundreds of thousands of new jobs. By means of clever public communication on the so-called energy demand, the impression prevails; the renewables are expanded too quickly. In the shadow of this false perception, the Grand Coalition is planning a radical change in their energy policy. Although nearly 90% of the energy demand in Germany (electricity, heat, fuels) is covered by fossil-nuclear energy sources, the expansion of renewable energies, which has been drastically reduced in recent years, is to be frozen at a low level. Even with the deformation of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) in 2014, the addition of solar and biogas plants has dramatically collapsed. If the planned EEG 2016 now also drastically reduces the amount of wind power on land, the energy turnaround is finally stalled.

  • New Energy Market Order (NEMO)

    For two decades the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has kept the world drifting in a fog of fatal illusions, led by notoriously diluted, politically contaminated and tactically delayed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports. The two-degree temperature increase over pre-industrial levels and associated 450 ppm atmospheric CO2 concentration targets promoted at UNFCCC negotiations are scientifically proven to be dangerously high and risk a permanently destabilized climate regime.
