Wien Energie Public Affairs Team

The energy sector is facing a period of radical change. As Austria’s leading energy company, we are at the very heart of political developments when it comes to electricity, heating, transport and digitalisation. Our public affairs team takes an active role in these transformation processes that will shape the energy system of tomorrow. We see new technologies as an opportunity – an opportunity to undertake public affairs work in a digital, dialogue-oriented and evidence-based way.

Sewage sludge drying

Wien Energie has developed an innovative process for the digestion, dehydration, drying and incineration of sewage sludge to produce environmentally-friendly district heating. 40,000 tonnes CO2 can thus be saved every year. An additional, environmentally-friendly advantage of the process is that phosphorus can be recovered.


E-mobility citizen participation

Wien Energie will build a total of 1,000 charging points by 2020 to ensure that there is a comprehensive network in place for electric cars. In the course of this project, residents of Vienna were given the opportunity to participate in the expansion drive by means of investment packages, thereby playing a role in the mobility revolution.


PV citizen participation

Our citizen solar power plants enable us to offer people a way of participating financially in PV systems, who in turn benefit from a secure investment and favourable electricity tariffs, while promoting the expansion of renewable energy in the city and cutting CO2 emissions.

@RStrayhammer @a_sator @franz__maier @JZaller also gerade bei gut gemachter Agro-Photovoltaik ... besteht eben KEIN "Nutzungskonflikt zwischen Tank und Teller" - im Gegenteil, der Ertrag kann sogar steigen! Das hier gewählte Framing finde ich sehr unglücklich - wird das bei den 1.755 km Autobahnen auch gefragt?
