ECO WORLD STYRIA, the Styrian energy and environmental technology cluster, sets the course. It is all about saving our resources, climate and envionmentally friendly solutions, quality of life and ultimately our livelihood.

„The clean solutions and technologies that are developed here attract researchers, innovators from all over the world.“ Bernhard Puttinger, CEO ECO WORLD STYRIA

 

The energy- and environmental technology industry is one of those business sectors that provides solutions to save our resources by technological and scientific means. Here in Styria, the #1 location for environmental technology, „green“ ideas, which conquer the world, are developed. Austria is equipped with specail natural advantages. Therefore it comes as no surprise that the Province of Styria has been known as „the green heart of Austria“ for quite some time. RIght on this 16,400 km² area – roughly the sive of New York City – a worldwide unique concentration of innovation, technology and market leaders of the renewable energy and environmental technology sector was established a hundred years ago, when the Kaplan turbine was invented here.

Researchers from around the world

Today, we call it „Green Tech Valley“. The clean solutions and technologies that are develped here are not only the most succesful and innovative on the international market – they also attract researchers, innovators and investors from all over the world. The top companies in the energy and environmental technology cluster ECO WORLD STYRIA and generate annual profits of three billion euro with their environmental technologies – a trend that is bound to increase in future. The annual growth in sales of 18 percent is almost twice as much as the world market´s growth rate. The companies united in the ECO WORLD STYRIA cluster are ranked at #1 among the world´s environmental technology clusters (www.cleantech.com).

From an economic perspective Styria is a land of innovation and only few regions within the EU can keep up with its economic dynamism. Green Tech Valley is the first choice of companies looking for a new location.

Styria has been supassing the EU´s targets for many years with the second-highest European R&D quota of 4.3 percent. „Green flashes of genius“ – technologies and products from seemingly worthless waste materials and algae, be it multifuntional, energy-efficient building facades or storage technologies – the companies from Green Tech Valley with their innovative porducts are definitely among Austria´s export champions.
