Energy Autonomy

The Economic, Social and Technological Case for Renewable Energy

«

'The most important political book of the year.'
Die Zeit

'Hermann Scheer - principal architect of the policies that converted cloudy Germany into the world's leading market for solar energy - demonstrates that the German model can and must be replicated in every nation that aspires toward a healthy, peaceful future.'
Deins Hayes, Former Director of the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory

'This book is a powerful indictment of how we meet our energy needs. In urging an acceleration of the transition to renewable energy, Scheer exposes the fallacies surrounding the current paradigm and looks beyond the purely environmental benefits to outline the path to energy security.'
Lester Brown, President of the Earth Policy Institute

'Hermann Scheer has taken aim against a number of our planet's Goliaths all at once. The world needs pioneers like him.'
Ernst Ulrich Von Weisacker, Dean of Environmental Science and Management, University of California, Santa Barbara

'This book is strongly recommended for anyone interested in climate change and sustainability.'
SPA Newsletter

This is one of the most readable accounts of the alternative energy generation field that has been produced recently. It is clear in its analysis and certain in its direction...[and] deserves the widest readership.
Bigpond

'...definitely one of the best [books] yet written about renewable energy policy.'
Photon International

'Comprehensively demonstrates why the transition to renewable energy is essential and how it can be done'
SirReadaLot.org

'Sheer passionately addresses the book to the growing number of renewable energy advocates, and to the even greater number of those who are simply curious about it.'
