Germans Sweep the World Wind Energy Awards

On the first day of the 3rd World Wind Conference, held in Beijing from the 1st to 4th of November, member of the German Parliament Hermann Scheer and German Minister for the Environment J?rgen Trittin have been awarded by the World Wind Energy Association (WWEA). With the award, the conference honored Germany’s leading position in wind energy to which both politicians contributed substantially. Preben Maegaard, chairman of WWEA, stressed Hermann Scheer’s commitment for Renewable Energies as a legislator, author, visionary and chairman of two central organizations for Renewable Energies: EUROSOLAR and the World Council for Renewable Energies (WCRE). The World Wind Energy Award is the last in a row of awards, which make Hermann Scheer winner of all present World Prices for Renewable Energies. In 1988 he already got the World Solar Price and in 2000 he was awarded with the World Bio-Energy award. For his dedication concerning an ecological sustainable energy supply during his current term of office, Trittin is honored. In particular the jury appreciated the decision to phase out of nuclear energy, introducing the so-called ‘eco-tax’ (the additional taxation of fuel), the support for the Renewable-Energies-Law (EEG) and his role in organizing the International Governmental Conference for Renewable Energies (renewables2004) in 2004.
