Highly-ranked politicians from Germany and France today attended SCHOTT to gather information on what solar energy could contribute to the transnational extension of renewable energies.

During their annual meeting, the amity group of member of the German Bundesrat and the French Senate visited the technology group in Mainz. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Ungeheuer, Chairman of the SCHOTT Management Board stated on the occasion: „Without doubt, solar energy is a key technology to meet essential challenges of our time. We need a secure energy supply at reasonable costs that is ressource and climate friendly at the same time. Within one hour, the sun sends more energy to the earth than we humans can consume within a whole year. Tit is one major goal of the Desertec project supported by SCHOTT to utilize this giant potential.
 
With the new EU-directive on the promotion of renewable energies in mind, the participants shared the assumption that, due to their refits, Germany and France have already taken the leading role and could strengthen their position through cooperative projects in the future.
 
„Renewable energies do not only hold great potentials for climate protection but also for a secure energy supply. A modern climate and energy policy offers economic opportunities as well, as we can see in our countries. We want to lead the way for the European Union“, said Margit Conrad, Secretary of the Environment, Consumer Protection, and Forestry of the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate who is also vice president of the German-French amity group of the Bundesrat.
