Energy Autonomy

The Economic, Social and Technological Case for Renewable Energy

Lecture by Hermann Scheer, President of Eurosolar and member of the Bundestag, with the participation of Josep Puig, vicepresident of Eurosolar.


For 200 years industrial civilization has relied on the combustion of abundant and cheap carbon fuels. But continued reliance has had perilous consequences. On the one hand there is the insecurity of relying on the world's most unstable region - the Middle East - compounded by the imminence of peak oil, growing scarcity and mounting prices. On the other, the potentially cataclysmic consequences of continuing to burn fossil fuels, as the evidence of accelerating climate change shows. Hermann Scheer will present alternatives to overcome the problems and dangers of the fossil and nuclear energy generation. In his speech he will present renewables as the solution to complete energy autonomy, a challenge for the world civilization in the 21st century.
