Rede von Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel anlässlich der Grundsteinlegung für das Hybridkraftwerk der ENERTRAG AG

Di, 21.04.2009 gehalten in Prenzlau
 
Sehr geehrter Herr Müller,
lieber Herr Ministerpräsident Matthias Platzeck,
liebe Kollegen aus dem Deutschen Bundestag und aus dem Landtag,
Herr Wirtschaftsminister,
liebe Gäste
und natürlich die Vertreter der örtlichen Instanzen,
 

Ich bin sehr gerne hierher gekommen – Katharina Reiche hatte mir schon vor geraumer Zeit von diesem Projekt berichtet. Ich bin natürlich auch hier, weil ich immer gerne in die Uckermark komme, und freue mich, wenn hier etwas Zukunftsweisendes passiert. Das ist mit dieser Grundsteinlegung heute der Fall. Ich bin auch sehr gerne hierher gekommen, weil Grundsteinlegungen und Investitionen in Zeiten, wie wir sie im Augenblick haben, Signale der Hoffnung, Signale der Zukunft sind.

Union Pour la Méditerranée - Plan Solaire Méditerranéen

Le « Processus de Barcelone : Union Pour la Méditerranée » UPM , lancé le 13 juillet 2008 par le Président de la République Française et 43 Etats membres, a pour objectif de promouvoir une nouvelle politique de coopération et de développement dans toute la région méditerranéenne. Afin d’y parvenir, l’Union pour la Méditerranée veut réaliser des projets concrets répondant aux principaux défis qui se posent aux pays des deux rives de la Méditerranée. Initialement, la présidence de l'Union Pour la Méditerranée est tenue conjointement par le Président de la République Arabe d'Egypte, Mohamed Hosni Moubarak, et le Président de la République Française, Nicolas Sarkozy.

Le Plan Solaire Méditerranéen représente le projet-phare de l'UPM. Les principaux objectifs du Plan Solaire Méditerranéen (PSM) sont le développement de capacités additionnelles de production d’électricité à partir d’énergies renouvelables (essentiellement d’origine solaire) dans les pays du Sud afin de satisfaire la demande locale en énergie. Le Plan prévoit également l’exportation d’une partie de l’électricité « verte » produite vers les pays de l’Union Européenne, étant donnée leur demande en énergies renouvelables et l’existence de mécanismes incitatifs mis en place dans le cadre de la proposition de directive européenne sur les énergies renouvelables. L'objectif concret de ce plan est la construction avant 2020 de 20 GW de capacités additionnelles de production d’électricité à partir d’énergies renouvelables.

Une conférence présentant les objectifs et modalités de fonctionnement du Plan Solaire Méditerranéen s'est tenue le 22 Novembre 2008 à Paris et a réuni des acteurs de haut niveau intéressés par une implication directe dans les projets du PSM : politiques, opérateurs privés et organisations industrielles, investisseurs potentiels (entreprises, fonds publics et privés), institutions financières, agences et organisations spécialisées.

A ce titre, la Société de Développement Eolien Sahara Wind Inc. à eu l'occasion de participer à ces travaux visant à mettre en évidence ces potentialités dans un cadre de collaboration permettant à plus de 43 Etats membres de part et d'autre de la Méditerranée de répondre aux défis énergétiques et environnementaux du 21ème siècle.

Sahara Wind project presented at WREC 21-24 July 2008 Glasgow, UK

The Sahara Wind Project presented at the 10th World Renewable Energy Congress.

This event followed successful meetings in Florence (2006), Denver (2004), and Cologne (2002). WREC attracted a truly international audience, with over 100 countries participating at WREC 2006. Held every two years, this was a major event in the calendar for all those involved in the supply, distribution, consumption, and development of energy sources which are benign, sustainable, accessible, and economically viable, providing a unique opportunity to learn of the latest developments in this rapidly changing and expanding field.

The World Renewable Energy Congress and Exhibition themes focused on all aspects and fields of renewable energy, firstly helping to ensure that they become a major contributor to a sustainable and secure energy supply for the greater benefit of all; as well as facilitating the knowledge exchange and business engagement of participants from both developed and developing countries; and finally, assisting with developing finance and institutional support for renewable energy projects locally and internationally.

The 10th World Renewable Energy Conference was held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, Glasgow, UK on 20 - 25 July 2008. BRE Scotland and the University of Strathclyde were proud to have jointly hosted this meeting on behalf of the World Renewable Energy Network, (WREN).
