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.
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.
Bonn, 25.09.2018. We appeal to you to help build a survivable and liveable future and avert any further damage to our heritage and future. This is the time to divest of coal and cooperate on building a healthy future for Germany and Europe – as leading examples of world best practice. Our global climate is tipping – bold action is needed to end the emission of greenhouse gas and rebuild our capacity to reduce it.
Two of our most precious resources are renewable energy and natural forests – healthy ecosystems and healthy energy resources that combine into elements of a sustainable future. We urge you to show your commitment to corporate responsibility by embarking on a path to enduring economic, social and environmental sustainability and get out of futureless investments.
