Land Steiermark- Government of Styria

The Provincial Government of Styria is represented by the division 15, department energy and domestic architecture, climate protection coordinator. With its employees the organization is liable for coordination, organization and implementation of the climate protection- and climate adaption plan of Styria. In 2011 the department invented the initiative “I'm doing it – for our future” to raise the awareness in Styria.

The Provincial Government of Styria, directorate 15, subdirectorate energy and housing, energy technologies and climate protection is responsible for energy consulting as well as the implementation and monitoring of the climate protection plan and the energy strategy. According to our initiative „I’m doing it – for our future“ we are organising acitivities like special information days in different parts of Styria, campaigns and competitions. 

In 2012 division 15 also took part in the study STMK12. This study analysed the impacts of future climate change for Styria. Our department also has experience in implementing a heat resilience plan since 2011. Therefore we cooperate with the Climate Change Service Center Austria (CCCA). The objective of this cooperation is to improve the knowledge of decision-makers (politicans, stakeholder from economy,…) about climate change, climate protection and climate adaption. 

Our department has also established an information centre for Energy and domestic architecture. The information centre offers consulting about climate change, regional climate scenarios, founding’s and also about other climate-relevant topics e.g. Energy saving, mobility consulting. The adivsory services will be constantly evaluated and adjusted by the department of energy and climate protection.
