EU and national energy policy is aimed at an economy and society low in emissions, resource-efficient and ecologically sound. Industry should expand while at the same time reducing the carbon footprint of its products. Improving energy efficiency is a key challenge here. Austrian industrial firms use innovative technologies to hone their production processes, so as to lower their energy costs, improve their competitive position, reduce their consumption of natural resources and help to protect the environment and climate.
