Wien/Austria, October 2016: With nearly 1 GW of monitored power, BaxEnergy is leading player, covering 45% of the Austrian wind energy market
Renewable energy plays an important role in Austria for reducing country’s dependence on imported fossil fuels and for supporting the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Over a quarter of Austria’s total power consumption comes from renewable energy sources, making the country one of the best on the global stage. In addition to hydropower that is the most important renewable energy source in Austria, wind energy has grown very quickly over the last decades, from 54 MW in 2000 to 2,4 GW at the end of 2015, placing Austria among the European leaders in terms of the share of wind power in energy supply.
By having already achieved a 31% share of renewables in the final energy consumption, Austria is well on track to reaching its goals for 2020: a 34% share of renewable energy of the total energy consumption by 2020 and a 20% reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. “Since 2002, we have invested heavily to boost energy efficiency and to expand renewables” said Erwin Proell, premier of Lower Austria, which this year has gone all in on clean energy with 100% of its electricity generation from renewable energy.
