Stanglwirt and Ökoenergie Tirol GmbH
Since 2012, the Stanglwirt has been sourcing 100% CO2-free green electricity from the small Tyrolean hydroelectric power station belonging to Ökoenergie Tirol GmbH, a subsidiary of TIWAG.
For us, "green" is not just an empty buzzword. We have been following this path consistently for decades. "That's why it is very important to us that our electricity also comes from renewable, local resources. It is Ökoenergie Tirol GmbH that makes it all possible," raves Maria Hauser about the new partnership.
Sustainability is what counts
Ökoenergie Tirol GmbH was founded in order to supply far-sighted businesses and environmentally-aware private customers with 100% CO2-free green electricity from small Tyrolean hydropower plants. It is TIWAG's ambition to use green electricity to set the ball rolling for a Tyrolean energy strategy, and to do their bit for the transition to alternative energy sources.
"We are delighted to have gained the Stanglwirt as an Ökoenergie Tirol customer. The Hauser family has been proving for decades that sustainable energy management pays off in every respect. Every detail is well thought-out at the Stanglwirt. From the method of construction, to serving meals made with regional produce, to the Tyrolean hospitality that is alive and kicking in its own inimitable way. From now on, we too can be part of this consistent overall concept, with our electricity supplied by small Tyrolean hydropower plants. We are very proud of our role," explains Johannes Steinlechner, Managing Director of Ökoenergie Tirol GmbH.
Green electricity from the region for the region
Ökoenergie Tirol buys 100% of its energy from small Tyrolean hydropower plants, such as the power station at Bruckhäusl near Wörgl, or the power station at Zams. The energy is analysed and certified in accordance with the Green Electricity Act. Thanks to this proof of origin and confirmation from an independent auditor, it has been proven that Ökoenergie Tirol electricity is completely clean and CO2-free.
"By acquiring 100% green electricity, Ökoenergie Tirol is helping customers to make use of small Tyrolean hydropower plants in a sustainable and eco-friendly way, as well as doing its bit for the transition to alternative energy sources," says Thomas Trattler, Managing Director of the TIWAG subsidiary company. With their partnership, Stanglwirt and Ökoenergie Tirol are making a valuable contribution to the value-added chain in Tyrol.
