/PRNewswire/ --
Energy concessions could offer relief for Eurocrisis
The countries most affected by the Eurocrisis could reduce their debts
substantially with concessions for renewable energy.
Greece
,
Italy
,
Portugal
,
Spain
and
Ireland
have excellent conditions for harvesting
energy from the sun, wind and geothermal sources. They could give
their creditors concessions for large scale investment programs in
renewable energy that offer enough long-term financial profit.
This 'renewable-energy-concessions-for-debt-reduction-plan' was introduced by
a group of renowned economics and energy professors and proposed in the
Dutch daily 'NRC Handelsblad' last Monday. A thirty percent debt reduction is
possible if
Ireland
gives less than one percent,
Portugal
about one percent and
Greece
about two percent of its total surface into concession for renewable
energy production. The authors emphasize that
'the energy projects don't have
to exclusively be large-scale and on a few big pieces of land. They could
capitalize on vast opportunities for decentralized energy locally as well'.
The involved countries would be able to pay off a substantial part of their debts
to the creditors and at the same time they will also receive a positive stimulus
for their economy and employment from the construction and maintenance of
the projects. '
Especially the young generation in these countries who now face
a tremendously high unemployment rate will enjoy a new perspective for a
debt-free future with many opportunities for healthy growth. And Europe will
have more renewable energy with which to contribute to a cleaner, healthier
and safer environment for its citizens
', according to the professors.
The EU Committee on Economic & Monetary Affairs has been requested to
seriously examine this plan. The proposals met with positive reactions from
Liberal Democrat, Social Democrat and Green MEPs. They welcome all
innovative and creative input into the ongoing debate. Solving the financial
crisis as well as the energy and environmental crises requires out-of-the-box
thinking and new economic models.
