Observing the world of renewable energy and sustainable living

Hermann Scheer

German American Business Association of California, Inc. and the MIT Club of Northern California Clean Technology Program invite you to this joint event. Towards Energy Autonomy New Politics for Renewable Energy. This is also the topic of Hermann Scheer’s latest book. Hermann Scheer will discuss how policy models fostering renewable energy can pave the way for energy autonomy. He will also discuss the current trends regarding the upcoming review of the German EEG (feed-in-tariff) which is due by the end of 2007 / beginning 2008 and which has created the largest solar energy market in the world.

Many people know Richard Heinberg and Colin Campbell. Hermann Scheer is less known, despite that he is an educator and author on energy matters as well, but on top of that he was the man behind the Renewables Wunder in Germany, by introducing feed-in-tariffs that greatly stimulated investment in renewable energiesw.

Countries all over the world are leading the way towards a green economy. Unfortunately lobbying by the oil, gas, coal and nuclear industries are hindering progress. Very soon, perhaps even now depending on the cost of electricity in your area, solar technology will be more economically cost effective than traditional forms of electrical production. Prominent attention for Hermann Scheer.

This documentary about how people and communities using Renewable Energy provides hope that we will achieve a sustainable future. This hope is a natural result of the ability of renewable energy to replace non-renewables like fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Hope for a Change sets the stage for a world where political and social autonomy is possible, energy crises are history, climate change is halted, and oil/nuclear war is averted. See how it’s possible to live an ethical existence today while providing hope for a better future for our children. Featured in this timely documentary are award-winning scientist and world-renowned environmentalist Dr. David Suzuki, author of the Geography of Hope, which is on the “Globe 100” list of the best books of the year — Chris Turner , and Right Livelihood award-winner Dr. Hermann Scheer, the architect of the German Renewable Energy Act.

Hermann Scheer (1944-2010): Lawmaker, Leading Advocate for Solar Energy and “Hero for the Green Century” in One of His Final Interview. He was one of the world’s leading advocates for solar power, has died at the age of sixty-six. The German economist and politician helped make Germany a renewable energy powerhouse and inspired many across the world to expand the use of solar power. Scheer had been member of the German Parliament for three decades and was the president of EUROSOLAR, the European Association for Renewable Energy. In 1999, he won the Right Livelihood Award for his “indefatigable work for the promotion of solar energy worldwide.” When he received the award, he described solar energy as the energy of the people. We met up with Herman Scheer last month in Bonn, Germany, for what turned out to be one of his final interviews.

Der aufwendig inszenierte Dokumentarfilm ruft zur Energiewende auf, weg von fossilen Rohstoffen hin zu erneuerbaren. Die mitreißende Vision: Eine Weltgemeinschaft, deren Energieversorgung zu 100 Prozent aus erneuerbaren Quellen gespeist ist – für jeden erreichbar, bezahlbar und sauber. Eine globale Umstrukturierung, die Machverhältnisse neu ordnet und Kapital gerechter verteilt, könnte jetzt beginnen. Der Film beobachtet in einer Reise um die Welt das Leben und Wirken von zehn Menschen, die ein Ziel verbindet: Energieautonomie. Fechner und sein Team begleiten engagierte Prominente, sprechen mit Top-Managern, afrikanischen Müttern, Bankern und ambitionierten Aktivisten auf der ganzen Welt. Mit beeindruckenden Bildern und klaren Aussagen zeigt der Film Lösungen auf, regt zum Weiterdenken und Handeln an und ist schon jetzt mehr als ein Film – eine Bewegung. [wikipedia]

Rede des Bundestagsabgeordneten Dr. Hermann Scheer vom 26.02. 2010 im Plenum des Deutschen Bundestages zum 10jährigen Bestehen des Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetzes (EEG). Hermann Scheer gilt als Wegbereiter des EEG, das am 25. Februar 2000 in Kraft trat.

Das heutige Energiesystem ist Energiesystem ohne Chancen für die Zukunft. Auch wenn es noch heute über 80% der Energieversorgung bestimmt.Es bleiben uns noch höchsten 30 Jahre, von konventionellen zu erreuerbaren Energien umzustellen. Die Energiewende wäre sofort machbar, wenn der politische Wille nur stark genug wäre.
