Güssing, eco-town

In recent years Güssing has made a name for itself because of its renewable energy efforts. This trend began in the early 1990s, energy conservation and the construction of a biomass district heating plant for supplying the heat of the city. The strategy was as follows: through the sustainable use of domestic resources for energy, depending on the one hand the nature of fossil fuels is reduced and secondly the regional value can be increased. This strategy worked out perfectly and is internationally known as a “model Güssing”.
An example of this process was commissioned in 2001. Biomass power plant, has contributed through its proprietary technology and has managed to establish itself as the research and development company of Güssing.
