National Energy Globe Award Austria

Submitted by: Werner Frissenbichler
Implemented country: Austria
Title: Eco-Energy Facility in Small Hydro Plant

The main objective of the project was the revitalization of an existing hydro-power plant, which was used to supply power to two families and to run a timber mill. In the absence of an automatic control of the turbine, the hydro-power plant was only used during the hours of operation of the mill. Through the revitalization, the annual production was raised by a factor of 2.5 without changing the feeding body of water. Additionally the possibility was created to feed the power grid with the overproduction.
