Companies in Salzburg are committed to energy efficiency

The program SALZBURG 2050 refers to the installation of solar panels, in order to reach 100% electricity from renewable sources by 2050. Trumer Brewery is one of the partner companies, which support the goals of the state’s energy strategy to make Salzburg climate-neutral. The photovoltaic system on the roof is to supply half of the electricity consumed by the Trumer Brewery in Obertrum.

Salzburg’s largest crowdfunded photovoltaic system will soon be installed on the roofs of the Trumer private brewery in Obertrum. The system is designed for 400-kilowatt peaks and in the first stage of expansion can cover up to half of the future power consumption of the brewery.

Trumer Sun Funding

“With ambitious projects like this one from Trumer Privatbrauerei, companies and institutions are not only helping to shape the energy turnaround for the future. They also strengthen the idea of tackling things together,” said Deputy Governor Heinrich Schellhorn during a visit to the future location of the plants on the roofs of the company’s warehouse in Obertrum. 

The money for the construction comes from crowdfunding, i.e. group financing. The name of the project is derived from this: “Trumer Sonnenfunding”. Interested parties can register for various crowdfunding packages at until September 20th, 2020. Previous measures save 330,000-kilowatt hours per year. The photovoltaic system is a further step in a series of Trumer sustainability projects.

Salzburg 2050 partner breweries

The private brewery is one of more than thirty SALZBURG 2050 partner breweries. “These companies provide us with exemplary support in achieving Salzburg’s climate goals. They are our allies in climate protection,” said the Deputy Governor. 

The Obertrumer Brauerei is committed to energy efficiency and holistic mobility. With the measures already implemented, the brewery is saving 330,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. “With the new photovoltaic system, we want to cover around half of our electricity requirements and brew our beer using the power of the sun in the future,” says private brewer Josef Sigl.

Before the installation, the photovoltaic check for companies is offered by the service center

The foundation stone for the construction was laid by independent and product-neutral advice from Umwelt Service Salzburg. The photovoltaic check for companies is one of the consulting services offered by the service center. The check provides information about yield, saving potential, size, own consumption and subsidies.

Partner companies help the state protect the climate

The SALZBURG 2050 Partner Companies program is aimed at companies with a location in the state of Salzburg. The partners support the goals of the state’s climate and energy strategy to make Salzburg climate-neutral, energy-autonomous and sustainable by the year 2050. 

This means: 100 percent electricity and heat from renewable energies and zero percent greenhouse gas emissions. The state in turn provides the companies with subsidies as well as technical and organizational support. “More and more Salzburg companies are joining our partner program and improving their energy efficiency. In this way they are making a major contribution to climate protection and the energy turnaround,” Schellhorn concluded.
