This year's VERBUND energy conference "energy2050" is entitled "In the marketplace of the energy future: what do customers want and what can the industry provide?" and will take place from 23 to 25 September 2015 at Schloss Fuschl. It will deal with the political, ecological, technical, financial and social aspects that are significant for a successful energy system of the future. Acquired knowledge, projects which have been carried out and stimulating discussions are to outline paths to new energy systems and what possible forms these could take.
Those giving talks at the conference will encourage the exchange between those representing finance, science, politics and other fields as well as initiating discussions on methods of resolution for the most urgent challenges.

Flexible energy usage has value. If you manage your electricity consumption intelligently, not only can you save money, you can even make money because you are making an important contribution to a stable energy supply. To this end, a close cooperation based on open and honest communication is required between energy providers and customers.
Dipl.-Ing. Wolfgang Anzengruber, Chair of the Managing Board VERBUND AG
Half of the energy we consume is wasted. We need to attribute energy efficiency the high value that it deserves. It is the second supporting pillar of the energy transition, and its foundation is the participation of citizens.
Patrick Mijnals, Managing Partner, bettervest GmbH, Germany
"Customers" want their energy from cleaner sources. They wish to use energy more economically. And they want more choice between energy suppliers. In the future, "customers" will shape European energy generation, distribution and supply.
