Energy supply and climate change

Climate change and energy supply problems are developments that neither politicians nor enterprises can ignore. This means that it is high time to act and we all have to do our part for the protection of the environment and the climate.

Numerous enterprises and public institutions have already accepted this responsibility and have re-designed their strategies to meet the climate and energy constraints. Increasing focus is being given to topics like renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, environmental protection, green technologies and sustainable management. At the international level more and more enterprises have committed themselves to climate protection with the aim to avoid, reduce or, if unavoidable, at least compensate for greenhouse gas emissions.

EU energy and climate package

What is the political environment in Europe like? Which actions or measures are relevant for a business enterprise? brainbows keeps track of developments for you. We work out the essential facts regarding the EU energy and climate package (2008) and its implications for, and implementation in, Austria and present them to you.

Austria’s Energy Strategy

In accordance with the EU directive, 34 percent of the Austrian energy consumption must come from renewable energy sources by 2020. Austria aims to reach this goal with “Austria’s Energy Strategy”, which is being developed jointly by the Federal Ministry for Economy, Family and Youth and the Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management. The energy strategy especially focuses on the implementation of measures and projects by 2020.

It will be a specially demanding, yet interesting challenge for brainbows to co-ordinate and support this process as an external consultant.

Climate-neutral enterprises

This is a special tool developed by us for companies to help them become climate-neutral. Based on detailed data collection, brainbows analyses the effectiveness of various measures, helps to restructure the company and offers information on the various grants available. In this project we compare a company’s emission sources and point out its potential to avoid or reduce them. Based on the varying findings of the analyses, individual emission-reducing measures will be defined for all products and services.
