Professional organisation



The Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry has been concerned with the use of wood as fuel since the 1980s. It is involved with the development of local and renewable energy sources since 1980, working in co-operation with the Styrian Energy Agency. It has been able to make the most of this mountainous farming region (60 % woodlands, many wood-processing industries, harsh climate) by creating a dynamic wood-fuel chain. 103 district heating networks have been established with the help of technical and financial partners. Their output amounts to more than 143 MW.
