Research and development
R&D is a core part of our work. Right now, we are busy working on the technology of tomorrow. That’s why we make sure we keep a close eye on the scientific developments and debates that will shape our future. We are especially keen to explore the potential, not to mention the possible applications and uses, of renewable energy sources and renewable power supply systems, as well as combinations of these to meet the needs of sector coupling.
The practical results of our research and development can be seen in our product innovations as well as the development and refinement of existing simulation and design tools.
Austria has set itself the goal of meeting its electricity requirement entirely from renewables by 2030. To achieve this ambition, a new legislative package is currently under consideration in the guise of the Renewable Energy Expansion Act (Erneuerbaren-Ausbau-Gesetz, EAG). We see this as an important scientific investment and a major contribution towards the future of our planet. And we, too, intend to play our part.
