The Institute

Over 50 employees work on a wide variety of technical issues in the field of energy technology at the Institute of Thermal Engineering. They use unique test facilities on a semi-technical to fully technical scale, as well as tailor-made simulation tools.

The Institute of Thermal Engineering consists of several working groups, which can be seen in the organizational structure. Head of the institute is Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christoph Hochenauer.

Goals of the Institute:

  • Development of innovative energy technology for Austria and Europe
  • Energy efficient use of resources
  • Development of local and global solutions for an economically and ecologically sustainable energy industry

We do not view climate protection and a competitive energy industry as a contradiction, but as a challenge and are happy about every form of cooperation.
