Save energy, lower costs, be inspired
The ENERGYbase was developed as a model project in the field of sustainable construction and energy efficiency in 2008. The ENERGYbase was the first business property built to the passive house standards and certified as “green building”.
The building saves approximately 80 percent of the operating costs for heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting and hot water. Scientific monitoring of the building has verified and confirmed the significant savings potential.
Besides the Technikum Wien University of Applied Science, (course of studies “Renewable urban energy systems”) there are private companies and an Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) research institute for renewable energy resident at the ENERGYbase: Technological priorities located in the middle of a very traditional Viennese industrial area.
