We mourn the loss of Hermann Scheer

We mourn the passing on October 14, 2010 of Dr. Hermann Scheer--German Parlimentarian, uncompromising renewable energy policy leader, advisor, and dear friend.

Named by Time magazine as Hero of the Green Century and recipient of the alternative Nobel Prize, he was a principal architect of Germany's most successful policies to move away from fossil fuel dependence to renewable energy, policies that have been adopted by the European Union and emulated throughout the world.

We will miss him and will carry on championing the mission of reaching a global 100% sustainable, renewable energy target by mid-century.

Rest in peace, Hermann.
