Energiepark Bruck/Leitha

Think Globally, Act Locally – more than 20 years of experience in the field of renewable energy and regional development

The association Energiepark Bruck/Leitha was established in 1995 and acts as an innovation center for renewable energy, energy efficiency, climate protection and regional development. Since then a wide range of renewable energy projects have been realized. Continuous awareness raising is a crucial factor to reach the Paris climate targets. Therefore, energy consulting services, applied research projects and green education complete the range of Energiepark Bruck/Leitha’s activities. Energiepark Bruck/Leitha sees itself as a strong regional player with cross-border projects to our neighbouring EU-countries.

Goals:

  • Realization of all forms of energy production based on regenerative resources
  • Research and development based on its own plants and supporting new technologies (e.g. biotech – microalgae)
  • Knowledge transfer (e.g. this MSc program) and awareness raising
  • Supporting the county capital (Bruck an der Leitha) and the surrounding region (Römerland Carnuntum) in all issues of energy efficiency
  • Connecting Austria’s eastern region with its neighbouring countries (esp. Slovakia and Hungary) in the form of cross-boundary (EU) projects and direct investments (PV plant in Slovakia)

Business Operating areas:

  • Consultancy services for energy efficiency measures
  • Energy strategies for municipalities and regions
  • Organization of excursions, lectures; working with pupils, students and the general public
  • Research & development projects
  • MSc Program „Renewable Energy Systems“
