Austria becomes the flagship region for energy innovations.
With the development and testing of new energy and
mobility technologies in the "Flagship Regions Energy",
know-how is built and future-oriented jobs are created.
This initiative of the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund
focuses on an efficient interaction of energy production,
consumption, system management and storage. The
best possible overall system for all market participants is
characterised by temporary regional supply from up to 100
per cent renewable energies. Tomorrow's energy world
should not only be innovative and safe, but also affordable,
and secure Austria as an industrial location.
THE FLAGSHIP REGIONS AT A GLANCE
In the "Green Energy Lab", part of Austria becomes a test
region for the future energy system with a significantly great
share of renewable energies. The focus is placed on more
flexibility and digitisation of the energy system to support
energy supply security.
The purpose of "NEFI" (New Energy for Industry) is to show
that 100% renewable energy supply of industrial sites is
possible with energy technologies developed in Austria.
The aim of "WIVA" (hydrogen initiative) is to demonstrate the
shift of the Austrian economy to an energy system which is
largely based on hydrogen. The focus is on the production,
storage, distribution and application of renewable hydrogen
in the fields of energy supply, industry and mobility.
THE "FLAGSHIP REGION ENERGY" INITIATIVE
In the "Flagship Region Energy", model solutions for
intelligent, secure and affordable energy and traffic systems
of the future are developed and demonstrated.
With a total term until 2025 and a funding budget of 20 to
40 million Euros per flagship region, the Austrian Climate
and Energy Fund is funding up to three flagship regions with
different thematic issues, using funds coming from the Federal
Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit).
