In Vorarlberg, several developments in the field of green electricity production have taken place in the last years. As a partner of the consortium ENERBUILD, the Regional Development Vorarlberg developed a common Green Electricity product and brought it to market in close cooperation with regional institutions, namely the Vorarlberg power plants corporation and the Working Group Renewable Energy. A lively exchange between the institutions and a joint development process took place in this project.
Results from the development in the field of green electricity production in the Regional Development Vorarlberg
Several institutions emerged from the work in the field of green electricity contributed by the Regional Development Vorarlberg. The Green Electricity Stock Exchange (Ökostrombörse Vorarlberg) is based on the funding micro-plants of AEEV by the private sector and laid the foundations for the joint development work. The result is a cooperation-agreement of the non-profit Association of Renewable Energy Vorarlberg and the (newly founded) VKW Öko Strom GmbH, which is a distributor of 100% local green electricity in Vorarlberg. The joint product is now being advertised after two years of development work as a „Green Electricity-Plus”- product. Currently, 200 clients are registered. In addition, the AEEV developed a civic participation model as part of ENERBUILD project. It allows citizens to participate in community facilities in their surroundings. A third result, also described in this document, is the development of a monitoring system for photovoltaic systems. The development is focused on fitting up the many small-and micro-plants with Information Technology, in order to increase their production safety. Production safety also means investment safety. The project partner Vorarlberg is happy to communicate this practical example to the project consortium and interested organizations or private persons.
