Austria needs electricity

Who needs how much?
Each Austrian federal state has its own power plants and its own power grid. Here too, supply and demand must be matched every single second of the day. However, the power generation and distribution structures in the Austrian states mean that one state may have an excess of supply while another has an excess of demand. For example, on windy days the state of Burgenland generates enough wind power to meet its own electricity needs many times over. The APG grid provides a strong backbone for distributing the excess power to the other states.
Where does our electricity come from?
All data shows actual figures and refers exclusively to the APG control area. Therefore, it is not representative of Austria as a whole.
