The innovative approach of “Clean Energy for Tourism” (CE4T) is based on the integrative, systemic optimisation in relation to the three central areas of electricity supply, electricity market and large consumers. CE4T is developing optimisation algorithms, related interfaces and an ICT framework to maximise energy efficiency & integration of renewable energies and to use flexibility options for both power and energy demand of the tourism industry. Especially winter tourism is a very energy intensive sector, where new concepts are needed for the use of renewable energies in the cold season.

„With the project CE4T we are contributing substantially to decarbonising and increasing the efficiency of the winter tourism sector. The aim is to generate the technologies and systems in such a way that they can also be used in other industrial sectors. We thus provide significant added value for further applications. For Salzburg AG this is a further opportunity to be a future-oriented partner for our customers by developing new services and products.“

  • Decarbonisation of the winter tourism industry using state-of-the-art digitalisation technology
  • Development of optimisation algorithms that show and exploit the required flexibility at all levels and enable integrated system-wide optimisation
  • Development of an energy monitoring system to increase energy efficiency, decarbonisation of energy generation and integration of renewable energy production units into the overall system


  • Monitoring set up in first ski resorts – already completed in Q1/2020
  • First optimisation carried out in the ski area for filling a storage pond – completed in Q3/2020
  • Roll-out of the optimisation tools to the first ski areas
  • Roll-out of the optimisation tools to other ski areas
  • Systemic consideration of the interaction between ski area, electricity market and electricity grid
