Book and documentary by Hermann Scheer
"In his book „Energy autonomy – new politics for renewable energies“ Hermann Scheer describes the multiple mental barriers to transitioning to renewable energies, the „power of traditional energy ideas“. But he also shows how an irreversible transition to renewable energies can be achieved. The Archimedean point is „energy autonomy“ – a political, technological and economic concept, which can be realised on many levels. But the only one way to reach energy autonomy is with renewable energies that can be activated everywhere, any time, decentrally, individually and with instant effects. Scheer‘s „new politics for renewable energies“ will free the discussions about energy from the mental prison of a specialised energy approach. It is an ideational and practical manual for a long-due energy transition."
