Climate neutrality ↔ Economic recovery
A special edition of the World Sustainable Energy Days (WSED), one of Europe’s largest annual conferences on climate neutrality, takes place from 21-25 June 2021 in Wels/Austria and online.
Europe has the ambitious goal of becoming the first climate neutral continent by 2050. The current economic challenges and related investment programmes are an opportunity to accelerate decarbonisation and to create a fairer society and a more competitive economy. It is crucial that the investment decisions made in the next few years put us on the path to climate neutrality!
In 2021, the conference - which attracts over 600 participants from over 60 countries each year - shows how we can make a green recovery happen in practice and how the energy transition can contribute as an investment engine to this deep transformation.
The WSED will be held as a hybrid event: you can join in Wels/Austria (conference days 22-24 June) or connect digitally from anywhere in the world!

Upper Austria – a leader in the clean energy transition
The WSED are organised by the OÖ Energiesparverband, the energy agency of Upper Austria. Upper Austria, one of Austria’s 9 regions, is well on its way in the clean energy transition. Through significant increases in energy efficiency and renewables, greenhouse gas emissions from buildings were reduced by 32% in 10 years. 75% of the electricity, 60% of all space heating and 31 % of the primary energy already come from renewables. Over 2 billion Euro are invested each year in the energy transition.
