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.

Thanks to the great effort of the Spanish section of EUROSOLAR, the award winners will be honored in a celebratory event in Barcelona this year. The European Solar Prize will be handed out on Friday, 18 November 2016 in cooperation with the Spanish section of EUROSOLAR and Barcelona City Council in the historical buildings of 'Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau'.

The event will start with a guided tour to the sustainable buildings, showing the innovations in energy efficiency in the former hospital. In addition to the award presentation, an exciting framework program on the topics 'Policy and vision for an energy transition' and 'Moving towards energy democracy' will be presented by an international panel. Afterwards, a get-together allows award winners and guests to mingle and exchange ideas and information. English-Spanish simultaneous translation will be provided. Please register for free until 9th November 2016.

EEUROSOLAR Delegates Assembly

EUROSOLAR Delegates Assembly, Bonn


  • 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.
