Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My translation (BTW, use blockquote):

Third, we must open growth perspectives for Greece. A potential step could be to take Mediterranean countries more strongly along in the turn to renewable energies, for example in solar electricity. Greece has a much higher number of annual sun hours than we in Germany and could export electricity to us. With that, the Greek economy would have a competitive export goods, and a coveted one at that. Without such and other growth perspectives, I would struggle very much with burdening the German tax payer with the significant risk of a new [rescue] programme.

It is not clear to me whether the "export good" he means is just electricity, or PV panels, too (e.g. the creation of a manufacturing base in Greece). But if the latter, I am all for it.
