Online Platform „Sustainable Development"
The online platform „Sustainable Development" provides communication and information transmission in the context of Research and Technology Programs in the area of Renewable Energy and Environmental Technologies. It is a service from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK).
In accordance with the principles of open access, all projects and project outcomes will be made available to the public. This will include the following Research and Technology Programs:
- Building of Tomorrow (1999 – 2013)
- Factory of Tomorrow (2000 – 2008)
- Energy Systems of Tomorrow (2003 – 2007)
The project categories in this programme section help you to find ongoing and completed projects. If you want to search for keywords, please use the full-text search.
Furthermore, the open access platform also provides the following:

The Joint Programming Conference Smart Energy Systems will bring together for the third time SET-Plan initiatives and funding networks in the field of energy systems and system integration.
Biomass, Photovoltaic, Solarthermal collectors, Heat pumps and Wind power
In 2020, about 1,000 projects and activities for publicly funded energy-related research, development and first-of-a-kind demonstration amounted to 155.2 million euros. As in previous years, the area of "energy-efficient end-use technologies" is in first place with expenditures of 76.8 million euros. The areas "smart grids and storage", "renewable energy" and "cross-cutting issues" follow by a comparatively wide margin.
