Association WIVA P&G
Funding of research and development
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.
For the further development of the European and the Austrian energy system, an increased integration and implementation of renewable hydrogen and hydrocarbons generated from it, such as methane, is required for a variety of ecological and economic reasons. As a central energy storage region, a hub in energy transport and an important location for renewable energy sources, Austria is ideally suited as an energy showcase region. Within the framework of the WIVA P&G association, an overarching overall concept is being developed that shows how existing and future projects can be networked.

Flagship region WIVA P&G
WIVA P&G combines the experience from more than 30 completed and ongoing projects and provides for the implementation of at least 25 planned sub-projects, with a proprietary innovation process enabling the integration of further projects.
The specifically founded association WIVA P&G coordinates and realises the flagship region, as nationally and internationally visible structure and represents the structural framework of the flagship regions thematic focus. This flagship region shows a multidisciplinary innovation structure, demonstrates and tests intelligent system solutions under real operating conditions and provides applicable systems for the user. There is no geographical restriction to Austria.
WIVA P&G shows, that Austria fits perfectly for switching to a system based on green hydrogen, which is a fundamental component for the transformation process of the energy system.
The Austrian climate and energy fund supports the hydrogen flagship region WIVA P&G based on an international jury decision as on of three national energy flagship regions. More details about the funding program “Vorzeigeregion Energie” can be foundhere.
The Hydrogen Initiative Flagship Region Austria Power & Gas (abr. „WIVA P&G“) is funded by the Austrian climate and energy fund and runs within the scope of the program „Vorzeigeregion Energie“.
