Hermann Scheer, president of solar energy organisation Eurosolar, is one of four recipients of the 1999 Right Livelihood Award, also known as the "alternative Nobel prize." This award, presented in Stockholm this month one day before the official Nobel prizes, is meant "to honour and support those offering practical and exemplary answers to the most urgent challenges facing us today." The jury praises Scheer, who is also a member of Germany's federal parliament, for his work in promoting the support of solar energy worldwide.
