30 years of EUROSOLAR - European symposium and parlamentarian evening: A Europe of Renewable Energies
On 27 September, EUROSOLAR was guest at the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) in Berlin – together with prominent guests. In addition to the board members and spokespersons of the European Association for Renewable Energies, celebrities from the world of renewables were invited to present their focus positions for a renewable Europe. Prof. Peter Droege and Irm Scheer-Pontenagel welcomed the guests before FES Chairman Kurt Beck took the floor. "We learned a lot from Hermann Scheer and took over what is today a natural part of our programme", the former Minister President of Rhineland-Palatinate made clear. If in phases, in which the traditional energy supply was not available, the lights do not go out as claimed before, that is a sign for the fact that the fear-mongering, the world will end, if one brings about an ecological turn in the energy policy, is unjustified and must be replaced by consistent and reasonable political decisions, said Beck.
