Austria in 2030 expects to switch to renewable energy


The country, said Chancellor Werner Faymann, has always been opposed to nuclear energy because it is not sustainable neither from the point of view of Economics nor from the point of view of ecology.

VIENNA, 1 Dec. Austria expects until 2030 to completely switch to renewable energy. On Monday during the climate summit in Paris said Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann.

“You are aware of the purpose, the end of the century without them (fossil fuels). Today in Austria the supply is 80% from renewable energy. We want this proportion to 2030 to increase to 100%. This would mean that in 2030 we would not use fossil energy sources for generating electricity,” he said.

The Chancellor added that Austria has always been opposed to the use of nuclear energy. “This is not sustainable neither from the point of view of Economics nor from the point of view of ecology,” he said.
