SPECIAL PURPOSE ENTITY(IES)/FUND
The project consists of the construction and operation of onshore wind farms in Austria.
The operation contributes to the national renewable energy targets as set out in the final National Climate and Energy Plan, published in December 2019. Austria aims to provide 100% of electricity consumption from renewable energy sources by 2030. The financing of this project also contributes to Bank's lending priority objectives on energy (Renewable Energy) as well as on climate action (transversal).
- Energy - Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply
Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)

The environmental and social risks associated with such exposed locations can be higher than for other onshore wind farms.
The EC has exempted all contracts, which are being awarded to implement electricity generation projects in Austria from the scope of the Utilities Directive 2004/17/EC (EC decision 2008/585/EG). No public procurement is therefore required.
