    Goals / Remit

    VERBUND is Austria's leading electricity company and one of the largest producers of electricity from hydropower in Europe. In 2021, VERBUND achieved an annual turnover of 4.8 billion Euro with 3.200 employees. VERBUND covers all sectors of energy supply – from the production and transportation of electricity to international sales and marketing. More than 96% of the electricity generation originates from renewable sources, with the majority stemming from hydropower. VERBUND’s hydropower plants, mainly located in Austria and Bavaria, have a capacity of 8.3 Megawatt (MW). The production portfolio is supplemented by thermal power plants. VERBUND's unbundled subsidiaries Austrian Power Grid (APG) and Gas Connect Austria (GCA), operate Austria's tranmission systems for electricity and gas.
