Green Power in Germany

Hans-Josef Fell, a member of the Germany Parliament, who initiated the German Renewable Energy Sources Law, will be talking on solar energy at the ANU in Canberra, 15 May 2008:


Solar Energy Feed-In Tariffs

Hans-Josef Fell (Member of Parliament - Germany)

DATE: 2008-05-15
TIME: 11:00:00 - 12:00:00
LOCATION: Engineering Lecture Theatre

Hans-Josef Fell, Member of the German Parliament (Greens), arrives in Australia as Envoy on behalf of the International Renewable Energy Agency (an initiative of the German government), advocate of the immensely successful renewable energy feed-in tariffs, and highly compelling critic of emissions trading schemes as substitute for action. Fell is one of the fathers of Germany's Renewable Feed-In Legislation and Solar Roof Programs, and has been instrumental in setting up the Energy Watch Group - it has commissioned a study by the Ludwig B�lkow Insitute demonstrating that oil production has peaked in 2006 and that the global oil-gas-coal-uranium 'superpeak' is expected before 2015. Hans-Josef will speak about his experiences with the feed-in legislation in Germany and will take questions from the audience.
