The "AusTrian National COmmittee on Large Dams" (ATCOLD) contributes to the safe, reliable and economic construction and operation of dams by supporting engineering education and the formulation of regulations, as well as through international cooperation in the ICOLD (International COmmission on Large Dams).
Dams with reservoirs can immediately and efficiently be used to store and generate electrical energy. Thus, they play an essential role in the use of energy from renewable but volatile sources such as wind and photovoltaics.
Reservoirs store drinking water and water that is used to irrigate agricultural land, while the dams that retain this water provide extra protection for the population against floods.
