Hermann Scheer

The politician (Germany)

Hermann Scheer is a creative politician, journalist and initiator. As a member of the German Bundestag, Chairman of the World Renewable Energies and winner of the Alternative Nobel Prize, he mobilized for years renewable energy as a key to couple technological progress with moral and to couple ecology with economics. In 2000, he was involved in the development of the Renewable Energies Act (EEG). Due to his dedication Germany has become the worldleader of energy production by renewable energies. So far, 47 states have adopted the law on renewable energy feed-in tariffs.

“I am convinced that anyone who has understood that the possibility to change to 100% renewables exists and why it is necessary now, will never get it out of the head again.”
