The renewable energy paradigm shift
A fully renewable energy system is economically feasible already at 2050.

According to a new Nature study  that explores different pathways to long-term sustainability, Solar PV will be the main source of electricity 2050, generating almost 70 % of all electricity globally.

“More of the same won´t do" 
How can large scale solar thermal plants could see breakthrough? Food for thought from Torsten Lütten who thinks time for ever more pilots and surveys is over.

"Let´s get over it, gear up. Support and praise the front runners rolling out a series of cost-efficient standardized solar thermal MW plants. We need thousands of those in every country to keep our cool."
