Efficient Use of Energy

Boosting energy efficiency is a key factor in achieving long-term energy and climate targets. The cleanest and most advantageous form of energy is the one we avoid consuming at all.

In Austria end-use energy consumption is still increasing. So to reverse the trend even greater efforts are necessary. The important aspects here are interaction between research and innovation, and implementation on a broad front.

Research and development

Energy efficiency measures must engage the application fields industry, buildings, transport and end use. Austria's energy research strategy is being revised in the dialogue process "Energiezukunft 2050" ("Energy Future 2050"), initiated in 2016. Efficient use of energy is an issue in many different fields of application.

Important overlaps with this research issue are to be found in the research programmes "City of Tomorrow" and "Future Mobility", the Climate & Energy Fund's energy research programmes, and international collaboration within the framework of IEA Forschungskooperation.
