In the long term, key indicators for the energy sector, climate policy and agriculture – which are regularly published by WIFO – are showing some structural adjustments to but also deviations from political targets. In its special topic, the report looks into energy efficiency issues. Compared to other European countries, Austria's efforts to boost the efficiency of its energy system resulted in a below-average improvement. In addition to technological approaches, measures to increase energy efficiency should aim at changing consumption habits and social norms in energy use.
