Energy Report

The Energy Report is an invitation to people to look at the situation of energy and the associated climate protection issues in Vienna. Over the last years, Vienna has set itself ambitious goals with the Smart City Strategy, for example reducing greenhouse gas emissions per capita by 80 per cent by 2050. Resource-conserving mobility is a key instrument for meeting the climate protection goals. Vienna is successfully increasing the share of public transport, walking and cycling. At 70 per cent ecomobility, Vienna ranks among the top cities worldwide. Energy generation is also undergoing positive developments. The share of renewables in Vienna has increased and will continue to grow, as many measures implemented in the last months and years will start to yield results in the years to come.
