VERBUND as creator of the energy future

Since 1947, VERBUND – founded as Österreichische Elektrizitätswirtschafts-AG – has been helping to shape the energy future: even back then we relied on hydropower and thus renewable energies. Today, more than 70 years later, VERBUND is the largest and climate-friendliest producer of electricity in Austria. Almost 100% of our electricity comes from hydropower, supplemented with wind and thermal power.

Responsibility at VERBUND

We are committed to the principle of sustainability in all areas of our business. In the area of electricity generation, we focus on the renewable energy sources of water and wind. Our power plants thus contribute to climate protection and the avoidance of CO2 emissions. We invest in ecological measures such as fish passes to secure and improve biodiversity at our power plants.
