The structure presented here and the underlying objectives follow the resolution of the Smart City Wien Framework Strategy 2014. The adaptation to the updated version of the Smart City Wien Framework Strategy will follow shortly.

Vienna is the city with the highest number of passive houses and was able to double the share of renewable energy from 5% in 1993 to 11% in 2011. Through various programmes such as the climate protection programme (Klimaschutzprogramm), the municipal energy efficiency programme (Städtisches Energieeffizienz-Programm) or the recent renewable action plan Vienna (Erneuerbarer Energie Plan Wien), the City of Vienna has created an important guideline to further renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Objectives in the area Energy Supply:

  • Vienna’s level of energy security remains high.
  • Vienna has smart energy grids that allow a decentralised, renewables-based energy supply.
  • Renewable energy production in the metropolitan area doubles between 2005 and 2030.
  • In 2030 30%, and in 2050 70% of Vienna’s final energy consumption originates from renewable sources.
