Solar Economy by Hermann Scheer

Book Description

The global economy and our way of life are based on the exploitation of fossil fuels, which not only threaten massive environmental and social disruption through global warming but, at present rates of consumption, will run out within decades, causing huge industrial dislocation and economic collapse. Even before then, the conflicts it causes in the Middle East and elsewhere will be frighteningly exacerbated. The alternative exists: renewable energy from renewable sources - above all, solar. Substituting renewable for fossil resources will take a new industrial revolution to avert the worst of the damage and establish a new international order. It can be done, and it can be done in time. The Solar Economy, by one of the world's most effective analysts and advocates, lays out the blueprints, showing how the political, economic and technological challenges can be met using indigenous, renewable and universally available resources, and the enormous opportunities and benefits that will flow from doing so.

Books By Author Hermann Scheer

Feed-in Tariffs by Hermann Scheer Feed-in Tariffs, Paperback (April 2009)

A feed-in tariff is a renewable energy law that obliges energy suppliers to buy electricity produced from renewable resources at a fixed price, usually over a fixed period - even from householders. This title presents an introduction to feed-in laws, examining the experience of countries that have implemented this model.

Energy Autonomy by Hermann Scheer Energy Autonomy, Hardback (December 2006)

Industrial civilization has relied on the combustion of abundant and cheap carbon fuels. But continued reliance has had perilous consequences. Yet there is a solution: to make the transition to renewable sources of energy and distributed, decentralized energy generation. This book provides what must be done to overcome the obstacles.

Solar Manifesto by Hermann Scheer Solar Manifesto, Paperback (April 2005)

Climate change, pollution, deforestation, destruction of the ozone layer, poverty and the population explosion are the problems created or exacerbated by the use of conventional energy. This title shows that this crisis may yet be reversed - but it can only be made to happen through a fundamental change in political and economic strategies.
