Working for the energy of the future

The Austrian Energy Agency offers answers for the future of energy. We provide scientifically founded advice for decision-makers in politics, business and administration – both nationally and internationally. As a competence centre for energy we concentrate on three strategic areas: missionzero, transformation and smart energy.
Focusing on missionzero the Austrian Energy Agency pursues the long-term objective of building a fossil-fuel free future through strategy development und the implementation of concrete measures. Relating to the transformation of the energy system we consider the associated changes and profitable business opportunities in the energy-relevant sectors. With regard to smart energy we engage in the intelligent and flexible energy system of the digital future.

Our focus lies on promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy sources between the poles of competitiveness, climate and environmental protection, and supply security. The Austrian Energy Agency develops strategies for sustainable and secure energy supply, provides advice and training, and is the networking platform for the energy industry. klimaaktiv, the climate protection initiative launched by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism (BMNT) is managed by the Austrian Energy Agency and coordinates the various measures in the areas of mobility, energy saving, construction & renovation and renewable energy.
