Energy


Based on the principle of sustainability, Austrian energy policy seeks to achieve an economically optimal supply of energy sources and raw materials, taking account of security of supply, cost-efficiency and environmental and social acceptability.

This objective will be achieved in particular by:

  • developing the statutory framework for energy and raw material supply
  • developing appropriate instruments for forward-looking energy and raw material planning
  • maintaining the technical basis for energy and raw material supply, in particular to protect human life and health and people's living conditions.

The focus of energy policy under the Austrian EU Presidency in relation to the current discussion at EU level will therefore be:

  • increasing energy efficiency
  • promotion of renewable energies
  • improvement of the functioning of the internal energy market
