At Green Energy Lab, we are bringing new ideas for a sustainable energy future to life.

Green Energy Lab

Green Energy Lab

Austria’s largest innovation laboratory for a sustainable energy future.

We use the combined resources of a constantly growing network of partners as well as the concentrated innovative power of one of Austria’s most dynamic regions. Together, we are able to demonstrate an integrated energy system based on 100% renewable energy.

Incubator for new energy solutions

Our Vision

Our Vision

Creating a new energy age

Our Vision

With customer-oriented solutions, we create an integrated energy system for a sustainable future.

Our Region

Our Region

A unique test market for the energy future

Our Region

The federal states Vienna, Lower Austria, Burgenland, and Styria are the core region of Green Energy Lab. This region offers ideal conditions for developing and testing new energy solutions: 5 million inhabitants, a strong contrast between urban and rural areas and, even today, by far the highest share of renewable energy production in Austria.

Our Goals

Our Goals

Innovative energy systems "made in Austria"

Our Goals

Together, we bring new ideas for the energy future to life, consolidate them to an integrated system and thus make our flagship region the global innovation leader for sustainable energy technologies.

We see ourselves as helping hands

In our innovation laboratory, together we already bring new ideas for the energy future to life today and accompany them on the way to their market maturity. In our open innovation processes, we integrate diverse approaches from companies, research institutes, start-ups, the public sector, and customers and enable quick access to knowledge and technology.

Identifying challenges and chances
Identifying challenges and chances

We monitor trends, technology developments, customers, and market opportunities. We generate knowledge and insights from our ongoing projects. We provide this information in a compact and application-oriented way.

Generating ideas and defining innovation projects
Generating ideas and defining innovation projects

Regardless of whether you create an idea at one of our events or whether you submit it via our open call, we will support you with our services and accompany the evolution of your idea through to a specific innovation project.

Developing and testing of innovative solutions
Developing and testing of innovative solutions

We accompany the customer-oriented implementation of selected innovation projects, we support sharpening the profile of business models, and we make innovative energy technologies known to a wide public.

Our projects

At Green Energy Lab we do not wait for the future to just happen. We bring new ideas to life today. We bundle research results and create tangible building blocks for the energy future with our flagship projects.

Integration of absorption technologies in district heating and cooling systems

AbSolut

The absorption technologies use thermally driven absorption processes to provide diverse solutions for thermal energy systems. The project examines the integration of these technologies in district heating and cooling systems.

Project Description
AC/DC

AC/DC

Increasing the attractiveness of e-vehicles and reducing emissions through networked and automated charging devices

AC/DC

The development of automated charging solutions for electric cars that are embedded discreetly in the roadway represents - due to the particularly high level of user friendliness - a great opportunity for electric mobility as a whole and for the introduction of automated, load-oriented charging in particular.

ATES Vienna

Integrating aquifer thermal energy storage into district heating networks to achieve complete decarbonisation

ATES Vienna

For the complete decarbonization of district heating systems, the integration of seasonal heat storage must take place. From a technological point of view, high-temperature aquifer heat storage systems (HT-ATES) come into question here. The project enables the seasonal storage of heat from, for example, waste heat or excess energy.
