Upper Austria - a leader in the clean energy transition

Upper Austria, one of Austria's nine regions, is a leader in the energy transition, making the region an ideal location for this conference. Through significant increases in energy efficiency and renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions from buildings were reduced by 39 % in 10 years. 60 % of all space heating and 31 % of the primary energy in Upper Austria already come from renewables. Over 2.5 billion Euro are invested annually in the energy transition.
