Title: Energy Life Cycle in Austria
Through the production of biodiesel from rape and old cooking oil, heat production from wood and biogas eco-energy production from local resources, the region around the city of Mureck (Austria) has become self-sufficient with sustainable energy. The efficiencies are 70% for heat production from wood and 75% for heat and energy production from renewable resources and biogas. This demonstrates the efficiency of the Mureck facilities in terms of renewable energy production. The local people are able to feel, see, touch and experience renewable energy. The task of persuasion has succeeded, the people are convinced of the local cycle because it has been implemented ecologically, economically and socio-politically correctly and will be continued in this way.
