The documentation and analysis of the market development of renewable energy technologies creates a data, planning and decision basis for numerous groups of actors in politics, economy and research and development. The present market study "Innovative Energy Technologies in Austria - Market Development 2019" creates these foundations for the fields of biomass, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, heat pumps and wind power.
In addition to the documentation of sales figures for the domestic market and the export market, economic figures in the areas of sales, jobs and the CO2 effects of these technologies are presented.
In 2019, Austrian companies in the fields of biomass, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, heat pumps and wind power generated a turnover of 5.2 billion euros and employed more than 30,000 people. The application of these innovative technologies provided 66.2 terawatt hours of renewable energy in Austria and avoided climate-damaging emissions amounting to 14 million tons of CO2 equivalent.
