Austria’s largest innovation laboratory for a sustainable energy future.
The Green Energy Lab is a contact point for all companies and institutions that contribute to the energy transition with innovative ideas. Using the solutions developed in our showcase region, we demonstrate how a sustainable energy system works. With our network of over 260 partners, we drive novel solutions forward, be it in the exchange of ideas, the development of new technologies or the testing of innovative business models. Join in now!
More About Us
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.
With our "Foresight Services" we enable you to react to trends and in the energy industry at an early stage and to address the right topics in your work.
Together with you, we identify the best project ideas and support you through quality assurance and funding know-how in the development of innovation projects with a high chance of funding.
With our focus on usability, leveraging our partner network and results-oriented communication, we support the market launch of your solution.
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
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
Increasing the attractiveness of e-vehicles and reducing emissions through networked and automated charging devices
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.Project Description
Integrating aquifer thermal energy storage into district heating networks to achieve complete decarbonisation
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.Project Description
Using satellite data to design new solutions for the energy transition: This is the goal of the "Space4Energy" hackathon. The competition for start-ups and students addresses central challenges of climate and environmental protection. Federal Minister Leonore Gewessler awarded the most innovative solutions. The Austrian Federal Forests, Energie Steiermark, Kelag and representatives of the FFG project "Spatial Energy Planning for Energy Transition" were part of the showcase of innovative power implemented by the Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, ESA Start-up Center and Green Energy Lab.More
