New book about Preben Maegaard published

"Continuous headwind. - pioneering the transition from fossil fuels and atomic energy to the renewable energies."

Writer: Joern Uz Ruby.
Forlaget Hovedland.


“It is characters like him, that gets things moving”, says Connie Hedegaard the Danish minister for the Environment about Preben Maegaard to the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten at September 17th 2006.

Friday the 15th September 2006 was the book by the writer Joern Uz Ruby “Continous headwind. - pioneering the transition from fossil fuels and atomic energy to the renewable energies” presented at a symposium at Folkecenter. The book is a biography about the administrative director at Folkecenter and fiery soul within renewable energy. Preben Maegaard is described as one of the idealists behind the greatest industrial adventure in Denmark - the windmills.

The book is about the last 30 years in which Preben Maegaard has been a pioneer within the transition from fossil fuels to different kinds of renewable energy. It is being described how Preben Maegaard founded Folkecenter in Denmark and how he has become a part of the international movement for sustainable energy. Finally are the perspectives for the future within the Danish and International environmental debate being discussed.

At the symposium the publisher Steen Piper described his meeting with Preben Maegaard as inspiring. Frede Hvelplund, who is a professor in energy planning at Aalborg University, praised Preben Maegaard for his role in the development of new energy forms and stated that new development has always come from the outskirts - both geographically and politically.
