Association "energie:autark Kötschach-Mauthen
To meet the challenges of climate change Kötschach-Mauthen has set the goal that until 2020 the energy-self-sufficiency coefficient should become 100%. Thus in 1996 the platform “energie:autark Kötschach-Mauthen“ was installed to deal with renewable energy subjects. The work within this platform resulted in the foundation of an association in May 2008, with politicians, managers, touristic experts and energy producers working together towards the goal. The association office is the drop-in centre for all energy topics in Kötschach-Mauthen, organizing of excursions, guided tours, seminars, events like “European Day of the Sun” and many more.
