Innovation & New Business

Innovation and progress are key principles at VERBUND. Our IT specialists – in product management, IT and security architecture and process management – work together on the research and implementation of ideas throughout our innovation process.
The goal is to ensure technical and economic feasibility. Our collaborative approach creates an innovative environment which gives rise to solutions that meet customer expectations and offer added value.


In order to develop and implement innovative solutions in the energy industry, specialists from various disciplines work closely together at VERBUND. Developers, designers (UX), data scientists and AI engineers combine their skills to create efficient, sustainable and safe solutions for the generation and use of energy. This gives rise to products that are not only technically outstanding, but also meet the specific requirements of the energy sector.

Information Security

Information security is of paramount importance at VERBUND as an operator of the country’s key critical infrastructure. The Security Operations Centre guarantees network and systems security through constant monitoring, precise analysis and rapid action.
In the "OT Cyber Security Lab", VERBUND is working on new technologies for use in controlling power plants and tests these in collaboration with numerous partners.

Automation & Scaling

Automation & scaling at VERBUND increases the efficiency, productivity and quality of the procedures in the Group. Responsible for this is the interaction of operating engineers, cloud engineers, DevOps engineers, process managers and automation engineers. The process managers identify potential automation possibilities, while the automation engineers are responsible for their technical implementation. In the area of security (SOC), the processes for this are automated in order to respond quickly to attacks and threats.

Operations & Monitoring

The team of cloud and network engineers is responsible for implementing, administering and optimising the infrastructure. Their tasks include ensuring stable and secure communication and increasing system efficiency through artificial intelligence. When it comes to operations, innovation and state-of-the-art IT architecture take top priority. Early detection of problems ensures optimal functionality and performance of the IT systems.

Support & IT Telecom

Support, IT and Telecom at VERBUND form the backbone of the Group through the provision and maintenance of the telecommunications infrastructure. The in-house expertise enables quick and efficient action in resolving incidents. The team is not only a central supporter, but also an active co-shaper in the value chain, from planning to operational management. The importance of the IT and telecommunications infrastructure can be seen in large industrial projects like Limberg 3.
