EUROSOLAR stands for comprehensive and peaceful sustainability through distributed and renewable energy. Its very mission and future visions are founded on real democracy and self-determination of local and regional cultures and identities: the evolution and liberation of the human spirit in pursuit of planetary harmony and human rights.

These universal values are fundamentally incompatible with the ugly resurrection of oppressive, centralist, oligarchic and injust policies and practices in various countries of Europe and the world, seeking to deny these basic rights, and squelching the ability to think and act freely in the interest of environmental sustainability and social justice.

On the occasion of the Bonn Climate Change Conference, June 17 - 27 2019, EUROSOLAR calls for a long overdue emergency response: The massive deployment of Decentralised Renewable Energy Systems. The most recent power outages in South America also show that the projections, goals and methods of both international conferences and national pathways are still entirely inadequate.

Statement by Professor Peter Droege, General Chairman of WCRE, President of EUROSOLAR

'There are two major threats, both man-made, to our collective survival: nuclear war and out-of-control climate chaos. Avoiding both requires determination, unity, collaboration and focus. Here it is important to overcome mistakes of divisiveness and hegemony of the past and allow enlightened and harmonious regional diversity to prosper - to build a mature, authentic and resilient Europe – one founded on Renewable Energy. The Treaty of Maastricht, freshly interpreted, offers guidance on how to rapidly implement a fully renewable, decarbonised Europe.

Bonn, 21 June 2018. Declaration of the European Board of EUROSOLAR,
formulated by Peter Droege, President EUROSOLAR

In the 30 years since the founding of EUROSOLAR, many extraordinary successes and advances in the proliferation of renewable energy have been made: the powerful feed-in tariffs; the rise of 100 % renewable buildings, communities and regions; the broad march of solar and wind into many countries’ power mixes; the revolution of national policies to embrace energy transitions; and the rise of renewable energy investment – which has long become the dominant mode in annual capital expenditures in new power generation capacity world-wide.

Press release, Bonn 14 December 2015

Last Saturday the 'climate negotiating parties’ in Paris achieved consensus on a binding set of agreements aiming at a maximum of 1.5 to 2 degrees temperature increase as target range. This was stated with such confidence that one could forget for a moment that the Earth's atmosphere has no thermostat: No one can control or assure an outcome, certainly not with resolutions alone, nor when there is already a greenhouse gas concentration far too high for the kind of relative climatic stability that has made human evolution possible. Methane venting from melting permafrost and destroyed rain forests and moorlands adds to the still rising greenhouse-gas stream from the combustion of coal, oil and gas. A 1.5-2 degrees Celsius target without a firm limit on emissions and an unwavering and bold commitment to 100% renewables is impossible to achieve. The Paris pledges are likely to put us above 2, if not 4 or 5 degrees.
