Austria’s government has outlined a roadmap to decarbonize the electricity sector by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2040, which can be found in their National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP). Austria has developed a strong renewable energy pipeline of green energy infrastructure assets, in 2020 it was reported that 78% of the country’s electricity was generated from renewable energy sources. The majority of this energy was produced by hydro, which accounts for 55-67% of the total which is generated by 130 hydro plants located in the Austrian Alps and run-of-river power plants. To achieve the plans set in the roadmap, Austria will also rely on energy production from independent companies. This article will introduce three key Austrian IPPs that can be found on our list of the largest European IPPs.
