Climate change adaptation strategies

Our more than 180 senior experts with a wide range of expertise and experience are characterized by a professional approach to the upcoming problems of climate change, and at the same time they possess an interdisciplinary and cooperatively designed solution competence.

The professional and technical expertise enables us to determine both how, how much, why (awareness raising) and who should produce renewable electricity, and also how the system of EEG (renewable energy law) should be designed so that a minimum of the generated electricity can also be fed into the grid. We evaluate where and to what extent there is potential for improvement and help to compare the offers.

Based on the competences and practical experience of our Senior Experts, we can more easily respond to social and socio-political conditions and see as one of our most important tasks to avoid losers and winners. We support citizens to become aware of their actions regarding energy consumption and thus to be able to change them more easily. We provide cities and municipalities with practicable support for political leadership to contribute to a more level playing field in climate policy and attach importance to a functioning conflict management.

Another essential task of ASEP Austrian Senior Experts is the comprehensive, in-depth process support (including the concept for the process design), which is necessary to give the EEGs a solid and sustainable start.

We are looking forward to your interest
