Annual Event “Vorzeigeregion Energie”



This year, the annual event of the showcase region Energy in Salzburg of the Climate and Energy Fund in cooperation with the Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation & Technology focused on innovators for the energy transition.

In this context, Anna Gantner from Wien Energie GmbH presented the ThermaFLEX Demonstrator Therme Wien – waste heat recovery from thermal water. This involves extracting the heat still contained in the thermal water that is already being used. With the sustainable use of large heat pumps, around 1,900 households in Vienna Oberlaa are supplied with climate-neutral district heating and 2,600 tonnes of CO2 are saved annually. A very fine example of a holistic and systemic approach as well as the circular economy. Congratulations on this showcase project.

Congratulations to the team around Theresia Vogel for this great event and thanks to Susanne Supper, Lisa Wolf, Karin Dögl and Mathias Schaffer from the Green Energy Lab for helping to organise it.
