Two major hydropower extension projects are scheduled for completion: Reisseck II (430 MW, 2014) and Limberg III (480 MW, 2017). Two wind parks are also under construction and expected for commissioning in 2012 and 2013: Petronell II (21 MW) and Hollern II (15 MW). All these projects are conducted by the Verbund Group.

Despite a 0.8% recovery in 2010, primary energy production fell again by 3% in 2011, in line with the 2.5% decrease in primary energy consumption. This noticeable drop in energy demand contributed to the 4.8% contraction in the energy consumption per unit of GDP (now 37% below the world average).
