Small Austrian town 100% renewable energy powered

Small Austrian town 100% renewable energy poweredThe Austrian community of Gussing says the successful story of a small town, with only 4.000 inhabitants, which 20 years ago had a poor economy, a huge rate of unemployment and most people living only from agriculture. Now it earns over 17 million dollars only from energy selling and it is completely energy self-sufficient.

When in 1988 the energy bill costs where 8 million dollars, some local leaders thought this amount could remain in the local budget if the town could generate its own electricity. In 1990 all the public buildings were isolated and the bulbs from the public lights were replaced with new energy-efficient ones.

The system, called “The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System”, covers almost 1400 hectares and will supply green energy for 140.000 American homes.

Brewery using solar energy in Germany

Brewery using solar energy in GermanyIn a country like Germany, where beer is considered as being a traditional product, is not unusual to find next to breweries companies that provide heat for producing the drink.

What can be an interesting idea is for a brewery to be completely self-sufficient by only using bioenergy and solar energy in the process. This is the case of Hofmühl Brewery, which intends to invest in a CHP system to provide both heat and electricity for their business.
