WIVA P&G is an association for funding the research and development in the fields of application, net and storage technologies for hydrogen and renewable gases. The association supports disseminations of these activities as well.
Due to a variety of ecological and economical reasons the further development of the European and Austrian energy system needs an increased integration and implementation of renewable hydrogen and the resulting hydrocarbons like methanols. As a central energy storage region, central link for energy transportation and important location for renewable energy sources Austria is perfectly suitable as flagship region for energy. Within the range of the association WIVA P&G an overall concept that shows how existing and future projects can be linked.
The association coordinates the projects of the flagship region “Wasserstoffinitiative Vorzeigeregion Austria Power & Gas” (WIVA P&G). Due to a variety of ecological and economical reasons (like decarbonisation, necessity of long term storage, alternative solutions for energy transportation etc.) the energy flagship region WIVA P&G aims to demonstrate the change of the Austrian economy into a largely CO2-neutral structure. The production and usage of renewable hydrogen are important key componants in the fields
