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
