Eurosolar englisch transparent

Independent. Critical. Non-profit.

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.

On Sunday, 19 June 2016, the first stone of the first renewable power plant from and for citizens will be laid down in Barcelona. So far 266 people are participating in the project that involves the installation of a wind turbine of shared ownership among citizens who voluntarily provide the money needed to realize the project.

Initiated by the Spanish branch of EUROSOLAR the project "Living from the air of the sky" is promoted and carried out by Eolpop SL, a small private company. Eolpop is responsible for commissioning the project, issuing participatory accounts that enable shared ownership of the turbine, and reaching agreements with the owners of the land and the town council.

Further information can be found on the project website www.viuredelaire.cat/.

Spain is one the world's biggest producer of wind power. Around 21% of the electrity consumption of the population is covered by the annual wind production of more than 50 GWh (numbers from 2014). In 2015, no new capacity was added.

  • 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.
