Dr. Reinhold Mitterlehner, Austrian Economy Minister

Austria leads Europe when it comes to sourcing the highest percentage of electricity from renewable sources, and by 2020 an impressive 71% of its electricity is expected to be powered by renewable energy from hydropower to wind power.

Next year Austria will host EWEA’s Annual Event and from February 4-7 visitors to the conference and exhibition in Vienna will also get the chance to sign up for trips to visit the country’s renewable energy fleet.

One such ‘experience Austria’ tour takes in two of the world’s most powerful onshore turbines which together have an annual energy yield of around 15 million kilowatt hours, meeting the energy needs of around 4,000 households.

If it’s political insight you’re after then you might be keen to know that Dr. Reinhold Mitterlehner, the Austrian Minister for the Economy, has confirmed that he will speak at the conference. Sign up to attend the EWEA Annual Event here.

Registration for the exhibition is free until this Sunday 14 October and anyone registered for the exhibition can also attend the opening session where Mitterlehner is expected to speak.
