Our wind energy projects
We at the energy park are pioneers in harnessing this energy source.
Even before the legislator pushed ahead with the expansion of wind power with the 2002 Green Electricity Act, we had intensively and proactively occupied ourselves with the topic of wind energy. Contrary to the scepticism of the meteorologists, wind measurements in the region began in 1995.
The knowledge gained provided the basis for the construction of the first wind farm in Bruck an der Leitha in 2000. The construction of the wind farm in Hollern and Petronell-Carnuntum followed in 2004. From the get go it was important to us to involve the local people in the process. For example, the three wind farms listed could be realized through public participation projects.
In the Region – together with the Region.
In recent years, the wind power portfolio has grown step by step, we now have 8 wind farms. The involvement of the population was and remains a central element of the wind power activities of Energiepark.
We have been working closely with the European Investment Bank on the financing level since 2013. It was the first wind power company in Austria to take this path. Here too, a portion of the pioneering spirit was involved.

Our wind power portfolio
Total number of wind turbines: 54
Total power installed: 167 MW
This produces green electricity for approximately 112,000 households every year.
The CO2 savings are around 212,000 tons per year.
The wind turbines used in the 8 wind farms are made by ENERCON and VESTAS.
