The Austrian Energy Agency
The Austrian Energy Agency was founded in 1977 as a non-profit-making scientific association. Its General Assembly comprises some of the most distinguished representatives of the Austrian Energy Sector. In 2011, the Austrian Energy Agency counted among its more than 40 members the federal government, federal provinces (Bundesländer), important enterprises from the fields of energy industry and energy engineering, interest groups, scientific organisations and energy agencies. This diversified structure is an essential prerequisite for independence and at the same time guarantees a good balance between theoretical scientific background and practical approach.
Main purpose and goal of the Austrian Energy Agency is to develop, support and implement measures that aim at a sustainable supply and use of energy. Among the items to be supported are innovative energy technologies (ET), energy-efficient systems (EE), and renewable energy sources (RES). In addition, the Agency participates and co-operates within projects and networks on national, EU and international levels to promote ET, EE and RES in cooperation with other institutions.
The Austrian Energy Agency is the leader of the national programme klimaaktiv that is carried out on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management. The sub-programme „energy efficient enterprises“ is supporting enterprises from industry and manufacturing in the development and implementation of measures for energy efficiency.
