By Stephen Lacey, Peterborough, New Hampshire. A common criticism of renewable resources such as wind and solar is that they are intermittent - meaning that storage is necessary for times when the resources are not so plentiful. But Dr. Hermann Scheer, General Chairman of the World Council on Renewable Energy, says that the storage problem isn't as big as opponents of renewables make it. Dr. Scheer, who was also Chairman of the first International Renewable Energy Storage Conference held in Gelsenkirchen, Germany last month, tells us about the many techniques and innovations in the field of mass storage.

In Australia, John Howard provoking a debate on nuclear power, politically motivated or not, has actually forced Australians to think about where they stand on the whole contentious issue of global warming. Here in Germany, they’ve already gone further than anyone in encouraging renewable energy – solar hydro, you name it – but at what cost? And what can we learn from the German experience? Dateline’s Chris Hammer reports.

Hermann Scheer argues that the reason why many still think renewable energy cannot replace fossil and nuclear power is because those working in these industries have made efforts to propagate the notion. Furthermore, a largely unsuspecting public seldom differentiates between a vested interest and an independent expert. Scientists and industrialists, dependent on nuclear and fossil fuel industries for their livelihoods, shun evidence that suggests a total shift to renewable energy is possible.

Interview published in Carta, April 3rd, 2006

Hermann Scheer, deputato nel Bundestag tedesco e presidente di EUROSOLAR sarà ospite il prossimo 1 aprile di Terra Futura, alla Fortezza da Basso di Firenze. Insieme a Stephan Kohler dell’Agenzia Energetica Tedesca, Eric Assadourian del World Watch Institute ed esperti italiani discuterà gli scenari energetici dei prossimi due decenni in Italia e nel mondo. L’”avvocato del solare” e uno dei padri della legge tedesca per le energie rinnovabili, si esprime a favore di una svolta decisa ed immediata verso le energie rinnovabili e critica le speranze nel metano come soluzione intermedia, il “carbone pulito” e l’idrogeno come tante strade sbagliate per tener in vita il sistema energetico esistente.
