Combining climate protection with security of supply and carbon-neutral energy supplies for rural districts and built-up areas under one roof is the focal point of the RAG Energy Valley project in Krift near Kremsmünster. This will be made possible by the finely tuned coordination of generation, conversion, storage and use of green energy and key raw materials. Summer solar energy will be made storable by converting it into hydrogen, for use in winter to provide power and heat for industry and households, and as transport fuel.

This will create a hub for a carbon-neutral energy future in Upper Austria, which can also provide secure, year-round and green energy supplies for large urban centres such as Vienna, Graz and Linz. Another advantage of the RAG Energy Valley project in Krift is that value added remains in the region, and its standing as a business location is strengthened.
