Representing Austria’s electricity industry
Since 1953 Oesterreichs Energie has been working to safeguard the electricity sector’s interests in its interactions with politicians, public administrative bodies and the general public. As the first point of contact for energy-related matters, we work closely with political institutions, public authorities and associations, and provide the public with information on subjects connected with the electricity industry. The Association’s 140 or so member companies generate about 90% of Austria's electricity, with a maximum capacity of more than 27,500 MW, and employ about 20,000 people. Together they generated about 70 TWh of electricity in 2021, around 75% of which came from renewable sources.
