Electricity and heat from renewable energies – wishful thinking or a real possibility?
How can you prepare for an unexpectedly long power outage – several days or even weeks? What options are there to no longer be dependent on rapidly increasing electricity prices in the long term? Generating electricity, heat and gas from renewable energies – wishful thinking or a real possibility?
Visitors to the special show “Autark.me” will find answers to these and many other questions at the premiere of “Bauen+Wohnen” Vienna from November 10th to 13th, 2022 at the Messe Wien. This autumn premiere is the only major event for the construction, energy, living and furnishing sectors in eastern Austria. The focus of the four days of the fair: the currently hot topics of energy saving, renewable energies and blackout.
Blackout prevention and self-sufficiency are inextricably linked. For Ing. Mag. Thomas Gernbauer, the organizer of the special show “Autark.me”, the possibility of being self-sufficient in a crisis situation is of the greatest importance: “Everyone should prepare themselves to be self-sufficient for at least 10 to 14 days to be able to.” Not only solutions for single-family houses will be presented, but also many innovative ideas for city apartments, whose residents are generally less able to protect themselves against the consequences of a blackout.
What can visitors expect at the special show of “Bauen+Wohnen” Vienna?
“All-round support on the subject of self-sufficient living. We have hired experts who will advise our prospects extensively, including a law firm with specialist knowledge of renewable energy communities,” explains Gernbauer, “and we also offer a job board for people who see their future in this exciting field.” In addition, there will be a lecture area on relevant topics in the special show “Autark.me”.
Themes of the special show
“Bauen+Wohnen” Vienna offers the perfect platform for everyone who wants comprehensive information on the topic of self-sufficiency and the innovations in this field: visitors to the special show “Autark.me” can find out how they can produce perfect drinking water from the water of the Danube or what you need to consider when installing balcony power plants. Aquaponics will also be presented – a process that combines the rearing of fish and other aquatic animals with the cultivation of useful plants such as vegetables. There will also be a raffle. The main prize in line with the motto of “Autark.me”: a balcony power plant.
self-sufficiency in the city
In addition to the topic of immediate preparation for a blackout, “Bauen+Wohnen” Vienna offers vertical gardens with the company Herbios for committed city gardeners, i.e. people who want to grow lettuce, vegetables, herbs or berries on their balcony/terrace. According to Manfred Peritsch, Managing Director of Herbios Vertical Gardens GmbH, a positive side effect of this activity is: “In the cold season, the plants benefit from the waste heat from the buildings, in summer they cool the outside areas and provide pleasant shade. With the option of automated irrigation, an easy-care organic garden including sun and privacy protection is created, in short an oasis of well-being for 365 days a year.”
