Electricity from hydropower

Hydropower is the most significant and profitable source for electricity generation and renewable energy.

VERBUND is now one of the largest hydropower electricity producers in Europe. More than 95% of our electricity comes from climate-friendly, renewable hydropower. The VERBUND Danube power plants alone could cover the electricity demands of almost all private households in Austria. We operate our hydropower plants efficiently and protect humans, nature and the climate. Electricity from hydropower is a precious commodity in which we will continue to invest prudently in the future.

This is what we stand for at VERBUND
