EUROSOLAR works for the rapid and complete removal of nuclear and fossil energies through renewable energies. Support our voice for a dynamic and decentralized energy supply with your membership.

Barcelona, October 23rd., 2015. In its fourteenth edition, the Spanish section of EUROSOLAR awarded the Solar Prizes 2015, in the Modernist Campus of the Old Saint Paul’s Hospital in Barcelona. EUROSOLAR Spain awarded the initiatives and/or achievements in the field of the use of renewable energies that are exemplary in Spain.

The award ceremony began with the screening of the third part of the film 'Oligopoly Off', focused on renewable energies in the hands of people, a critical documentary with the current Spanish energy system, directed by Alba del Campo and produced by the Spanish Platform for a New Energy Model - PxNME.

Dr. Josep Puig, president of EUROSOLAR Spain, introduced the event with the presentation of the current status of renewable energy worldwide, compared with the current situation in Spain, detailing the political process that led from its remarkable development to virtual paralysis today emphasizing the bad government policies being carried out in Spain in recent years.

Ms. Gemma Balasch, representing Triodos Foundation, remarked Triodos Bank's commitment to renewable energy, despite this and harsh reality. Mr. Jordi Miralles, president of the Earth Foundation, conducted the ceremony of the awards, stating the reasons for rewarding each of the winning projects.


The initiatives award-winning in the call for 2015 were:

Solar Prize 2015 for industrial and commercial companies that use renewable energy
ESADE Creapolis for its project  of 10 kW solar PV system, not connected to the grid,  to supply 10 electric vehicles. The combination of renewable technologies (solar PV) with electricity storage technologies (batteries for electric cars) gets to provide the mobility services without emissions of any kind.

Solar Prize 2015 for associations promoting renewable energy projects
Anpier - National Association of Renewable Energy Producers and Investors, for his project El Camino del Sol (The Solar Path), an exemplary example of how to promote and defend renewable energy among citizens.

Solar Prize 2015 for the special contribution to the development of renewable energy
Tomas Padrón, who promoted the wind-hydro plant in the island of El Hierro. The exemplary work of Tomas Padrón, while headed the Cabildo del Hierro (1979-1991 and 1995-2011) proposing a sustainable development plan that projected an energy  self-sufficient island with renewables. His lifelong commitment was finally materialized in 2014 when power plant (the first of its kind) was commissioned, combining in an exemplary way, wind energy with hydraulic energy.

Solar Prize 2015 for the special contribution to the development of renewable energies
The Holtrop’s team for his project of renewable energies legal defense. The team of lawyers, led by Piet Holtrop, is playing an important role in the defense (in the Spanish and European courts) of  people and entities who heard the call of governments to invest in renewable technologies and they have seen violated their rights.

  • 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.
