VERBUND electricity – regional and renewable

Over 20 years ago, we began introducing environmental management systems in our power plants. These have been continually rolled out at new VERBUND plants and are annually audited and certified by external experts (TÜV-SÜD-Zertifizierung: TÜV EE, TÜV EE+, TÜV EE neu). Over 30 terawatt hours of electricity are generated by the VERBUND power plants each year from renewable sources of energy. Most of the electricity we generate is obtained from climate-friendly, renewable hydropower. All VERBUND power plants meet the highest requirements of quality and ecology.

Maintaining the existing, securing progress

Maintaining and optimising existing plants is an important factor for success when it comes to achieving energy and climate targets. That’s why VERBUND believes the continuous maintenance and improvement of existing plants is so important for increasing efficiency and greening. To safeguard or improve the diversity of animals and plants, VERBUND invests continuously in environmental protection and in ecological measures, such as the construction of fish passes, in order to ensure that fish can swim upstream unhindered in the areas around the power plants.

Water, wind and sun – investing in the future

Alongside hydropower projects, VERBUND is also increasingly focusing on wind and solar power. In future, one quarter of VERBUND’s total electricity generation will additionally be generated from photovoltaics and further wind turbines. We are therefore purposefully continuing along our path towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions by generating electricity from renewable sources of energy.

Green electricity certificates for your CO₂-free electricity balance sheet

Electricity alone is not enough to ensure competitiveness. We support the active CO2 management of your company with green electricity certificates. With renewable energy from our more than 130 run-of-river and storage power plants, you secure a competitive advantage that you can share with your customers. Use our international expertise for electricity labelling.

CO2 certificates for your CO2-neutral climate balance

Where CO2 emissions are unavoidable, you can at least make them climate neutral by purchasing CO2 certificates. VERBUND invests not only in its own climate-friendly projects, but also guarantees its customers access to the CO2 market. Naturally, that also includes participation in the statutory European emissions trading system (“EU-ETS”). Choose between the following products:

  • EU Emissions Allowances (EUAs)
  • Emissions Reductions (CERs)
  • Emissions Reduction (VERs)

Benefit from a conservative risk policy without speculative price recommendations, excellent product flexibility with spot and forward transactions or the most modern form of hedging management. We’d be pleased to assist you with the sustainable design of your company’s carbon footprint, too.
