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.

Both the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the G7 countries have now declared their commitment to seemingly dramatic measures. The IEA calls for an end to new coal, oil and natural gas production: this would indeed mean a dramatic end to current machinations for climate disaster exporters like Australia. And the leading industrialized nations G7 want to move away from the financing of foreign coal-fired power plants. However, both circles are cheating.
 
The IEA shows in the fine print a completely utopian annual growth rate of up to 24 GW of nuclear power in the period to 2050, and a whopping 7.6 GT of CO2 capture, injection and utilization (CCUS) planned - in comparison: that would be 22.5% of the world emissions in 2020. The G7 also want to continue to promote coal if CCUS is financed at the same time.
 
Everybody who reads and knows EUROSOLAR is aware that this is not only technically breathtakingly acrobatic, extremely expensive and to be paid for by the tax payer - will also be extremely dangerous. In plain language: the G7 states and the IEA are willing to put our health and the future of our children at risk with fossil and nuclear energies - in an irresponsible game of existential roulette.
 
Only by immediately switching to renewable energies and implementing the other essential measures of our Renewable Earth Decade demands, there is a chance to reach zero emissions by 2030, and to become climate positive by 2040: to absorb more atmospheric emissions than are emitted. Current CO2 concentrations in the air we breathe are already much too high to make the calls for 'climate neutrality / zero emissions by 2050' seem remotely adequate to stabilize the planet's climate, currently sliding into a hot-house state.

    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.
