Energy Autonomy: The Economic, Social & Technological Case for Renewable Energy is a 2006 book written by Hermann Scheer.

For 200 years industrial civilization has relied on the combustion of abundant and cheap fossil fuels. But continued reliance has had some adverse social and environmental consequences. The solution, explains Scheer, is to make the transition to renewable energy and distributed, decentralized energy generation. Scheer argues that this is a model that has been proven, technologically, commercially and politically. Much progress with renewable energy commercialization has already been made in Europe where the renewable energy industry is a multi-billion Euro industry with high growth rates.[2]
