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.

‘Urban Energy Transition 2 – Renewable Strategies for Cities and Regions’ by EUROSOLAR President Prof. Peter Droege

lights 93331 960 720 web

Bonn, 27.08.2018. Our cities contain the settings and solution for a central existential challenge of our time: climate shift. The development of a regenerative energy system holds the key for the continued prospering of our social and economic structures. Communities, cities and regions as central places of human activity play a decisive role in this. The second edition of the book ‘Urban Energy Transition’ is a progressive reading for citizens, companies, communities, from villages to megacities and metropolitan regions that are striving for a rapid change from fossil fuels and nuclear energy to renewable energies. On about 700 pages, technical, financial, systematic, urban planning, landscape planning and sociological questions are discussed and strategies for a successful energy turnaround in the city and the region are presented.

Bonn, 21.07.2018. 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.

  • 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.
