EUROSOLAR calls for regenerative emergency actions to limit climate catastrophe


Bonn, 21 June 2018. Declaration of the European Board of EUROSOLAR,
formulated by Peter Droege, President EUROSOLAR

In the 30 years since the founding of EUROSOLAR, many extraordinary successes and advances in the proliferation of renewable energy have been made: the powerful feed-in tariffs; the rise of 100 % renewable buildings, communities and regions; the broad march of solar and wind into many countries’ power mixes; the revolution of national policies to embrace energy transitions; and the rise of renewable energy investment – which has long become the dominant mode in annual capital expenditures in new power generation capacity world-wide.


"Living from the air" is in commission now - great success for community wind in Catalonia

The EUROSOLAR Spain's community wind project "Viure del aire", Living from the Air, was commissioned last month and is operational. The head of EUROSOLAR Spain, Dr. Josep Puig, said: "I'm pleased to inform that the Southern Europe's first community wind project is fully operational now. There are more than 500 people, associations and small companies participàting involved it."

The project took nine years from the idea to the making it operational, without any subsidy nor any premium price.It is a real demo that people can act despite the bad political energy regulations in Spain.
