Independent. Critical. Non-profit.

We fight for the energy transition and a sustainable, environmentally friendly and socially just economy based on 100% renewable energies. Be part of the energy transition and support us with your membership.

EUROSOLAR explains current projects - converting old houses into zero-energy houses. IRES 2021. National Climate Defence Budget - now also in the new digital format: EUROSOLAR TV.

CLIMATE DEFENSE BUDGET

How do we save the climate in the last second? "National climate defense budgets" are the first step to finance the phase-out of fossil fuels and the switch to renewable energy. 5%-8% of the gross national product are estimated for this. Thus 45% less, than Germany spent in the last and current year for the fight of the Corona Pandemie. But what is being done to the "climate defense budget" and what effects can be achieved with it? Guest: Peter Droege, President EUROSOLAR

 

PROJECT OF THE WEEK PRIMAL HOUSES TO ZERO ENERGY HOUSES

350 year old buildings have been transformed into modern zero-energy houses in the Engadine. The traditional architecture was preserved, yet the building was brought into the 21st century. Architect Peter Felix brought the buildings, which had been empty for over 50 years, back to life with the power of the sun and geothermal energy. And what works in Switzerland, works everywhere. Guest: Peter Felix, architect

 

INTERNATlONAL ENERGY STORAGE CONFERENCE (IRES) 2021

One of the world's largest scientific conferences on energy storage is casting its shadow ahead. Without energy storage, our power grid will not become fossil-free. The technologies are here and coming, but political regulation lags far behind technical development. In the new regulatory environment, not only must national laws be changed, but international rules must be found. The political regulatory processes lag far behind the technical development. Guest: Andreas Hauer, IRES

  • Whitepaper: "Regenerative Europe"

    Whitepaper Regenerative Europe 2018 web

    EU 4.0 - For a Europe of 100 % Distributed Renewable Energies

    From The idea Of The Energy Union... Climate action at the European level is unfocused, ineffective and inadequate. In response, EUROSOLAR has designed transformation measures for the energy system at a much higher implementation scope and level of prioritisation. The actual situation shows that the EU policy as it is currently being implemented would perhaps have had a chance of success a generation ago if it had resulted in a 100 percent renewable reality today. Today the targets must therefore be very different. The targets on which the Commission, the Council and Parliament were able to agree remain far too timid and non-binding to finally put an end to the dominance of fossil nuclear interests. For this reason, EUROSOLAR advocates a New Energy Market Framework, which would make a secure and cost-effective energy supply possible and could accelerate a decentralised energy turnaround.

  • 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.

World Council for Renewable Energy

The independent World Council for Renewable Energy (WCRE) was founded to consider and deal amongst others with the increasing global energy demand, the comprehensive impacts, climate hazards, burdens to the environment, risk of accidents, conflicts around exhausting resources and focus new investments on Renewable Energy and energy efficiency.
