Austria plans to switch to renewable energy by 2030

Austria pledged to completely switch to renewable energy sources and abandon the use of nuclear power plants by 2030, Ecotown reports.

“Installing more wind turbines and solar stations will make it possible to completely switch to electricity from renewable energy sources”, says Deputy Governor of Lower Austria Stefan Pernkopf. “We will share our own experience of using energy at the state level with the federal government”.

By 2036, Austria plans to increase solar energy production by 10 times.

100% of the electricity will be received through renewable energy, without the use of nuclear electricity.

The new Minister of the Environment and Transport, Leonore Gevesler, also planned to transfer the country to electricity from alternative energy sources.

Airports of Paris will use solar electricity.
