Facts and figures about energy

Cover of the Energy Report of the City of Vienna

With its 1.8 million inhabitants, Vienna is a strong driver for innovation at the heart of Europe. Therefore, the city must pay particular attention to energy efficiency and climate-friendly mobility, increase the use of waste heat, and promote the use of renewables for energy generation.

Much has been achieved in all these areas. The impact of the city's efforts is reflected in current energy report. For the first time ever, more people in Vienna own an annual public transport pass than a car. Switching from driving to using public transport reduces carbon dioxide emissions dramatically, as the transportation sector is the largest producer of carbon dioxide.
