Christian Holter as energy expert at "Talk im Hangar- 7”

On September 30th, Christian Holter of SOLID accepted the invitation of the private broadcaster Servus TV to participate in the discussion program "Talk im Hangar- 7"

On September 30th, Christian Holter of SOLID accepted the invitation of the private broadcaster Servus TV to participate in the discussion program "Talk im Hangar-7" on the topic of "Heating, refueling, climate tax: How bitter will the winter be? Here, Holter was to contribute his many years of experience in the solar and energy industries. Host Michael Fleischhacker also invited experts from various fields to shed light on the topic. Publicist Susanne Gaschke particularly focuses on the costs of the energy turnaround and how they will be passed on to the citizens. Energy and crisis expert Herbert Saurugg would like to draw attention to the fact that climate-related catastrophes, such as those that are already a reality in the USA, can also take place in Europe and that people should prepare themselves. Poverty expert Ulrich Schneider strongly advocates that the costs for the energy transition be redistributed in a socially acceptable way.

 

During the broadcast, Holter repeatedly appealed to the fact that the energy transition is not an issue for just one generation. Fundamental infrastructure transformations, such as the expansion of the railroads, would not have been possible with today's ways of thinking and acting. Herbert Saurugg added that it also takes more than just connecting new power plants to the grid. Renewable energy sources have already shown in the first step that they work. To take on system responsibility, storage facilities and comprehensive energy management that also involves consumers, are very much needed.



Rising prices for oil and gas also bring into focus the problem of dependence on imports from non-democratic structures and the heating sector in general, which accounts for 50% of our energy consumption. Our system has been built on cheap fossil fuels for the last 50 years and every year about 10 billion euros, even more in 2021, flow out of Austria for energy supply. According to Holter, if this money was invested in expanding the infrastructure of renewables, it would be possible to keep values in the country, increase employment and reduce dependencies.

That climate change is happening was beyond question for all participants. However, the experts still disagree on how measures can be effectively implemented.
