"Global warming, depleted resources and a destroyed natural environment demonstrate that humankind has 'overdrawn its account'. All three crises are interdependent, calling for a common solution: we must embark upon a solar efficiency economy."
The multinational energy sector of today has created a dead end. The alternative: the decentralized solar network approach, which relies on
- renewable energies and materials,
- the interconnection of many supply systems distributed across urban and rural areas,
- energy efficiency and savings.
'Sustainable Germany in a Globalized World'; study published by Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy
Project objective: sustainable energy generation by the people, for the people
The users of energy, the people in the local communities, are shaping a climate-friendly energy future in their regions. They establish energy cooperatives and jointly invest in renewable energy. They effectively complement the climate protection policy of the government by their local civic commitment.
The outcome: added climate protection by demonstrating civic responsibility and higher economic efficiency by acting in the framework of a cooperative.
Committed people: for an energy transition now
Committed and competent experts are needed to effectively advance the establishment of energy cooperatives. They should act as promoters of new energy projects. It takes proactive and innovative people to motivate other people and institutions and organizations to take similar steps toward a sustainable system of energy generation. The 'Project Developer for Energy Cooperatives' training curriculum is the only course in Germany to qualify these experts.
