ECO WORLD STYRIA achieved a pleasing result in 2014. The previous 5-year goals to 2015 were achieved ahead of time and exceeded targets. ECO was able to co-initiate over 20 innovation projects worth around €30 million. The project spectrum ranges from thermal energy storage, to green public buildings and on to sensor-based sorting of metals. For sales and distribution, the cluster partners make use of the new direct customer access from ECO on four continents and in 10 global clusters. Further insights and perspectives are contained in the annual report.
