In Austria, biomass combustion technology has achieved an exceptionally high level of sophistication. The market has developed a broad range of efficient and environmentally-friendly heating systems. Austrian producers of biomass boilers sell about 75 percent of their products abroad and Austria’s largest state, Lower Austria, is sourcing 100% of its electricity from renewable sources, creating 38,000 “green jobs” in the process.

Austria is among Europe’s leaders in applying environmentally friendly and sustainable technologies, including waste management, recycling, energy efficiency and renewable energy, as well as air and water pollution protection.

Bosnia and Herzegovina has about 3500 MW of unused hydropower potential. Macedonia about 5500 GWH, of which only about 27% are used. Montenegro, although it is only a small country, has an abundance of hydropower resources. The planned re-commissioning of 15 small hydropower plants in Serbia is another example of the rapid developments in this region. And even in mountainous Albania the first projects of international small-scale hydropower investors have already been realized.
