Renewable Energy Policy and Market Development Worldwide

22-03-2013, 11:00 to 13:30, Vienna International Centre - Room M3, Vienna, Austria

According to the Austrian Energy Strategy, the share of renewable energy has to be increased to 34% by 2020. The Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management therefore initiated the project “Energy in Central and Eastern Europe” where information on energy efficiency and renewable energy in CEE-countries is offered.

The event is jointly organised by the Austrian Energy Agency, by REN21 and REEEP in order to strengthen the worldwide information process on renewable energy in a concerted and structured way.
