Energy consumption of small and medium-sized enterprises

How much electricity do Austrian companies consume? How much natural gas? How high are corporate costs for fuel? Which industries are most affected by energy price increases? These and similar questions are answered by energy statistics.

The survey of energy consumption of small and medium-sized enterprises aims to record energy consumption and energy costs in the production sector and reflects changes in a time series. The survey forms an essential basis for the energy balance and the overall energy accounts and thus contributes to the description of the energy situation in Austria and its comparability within the European framework.
