Energy Consulting

The quality of energy consultations can vary strongly! The ARGE-EBA-approved consultants of the Energy Agency Styria provide professional support with many years of experience.

You need support at building a new house or at the refurbishment of the old one? You don’t know which heating system you should choose?   Moreover, why are the energy costs rising and rising? Well, then we guess it’s time for an energy consultation!

We offer qualified and helpful information concerning energy efficient construction and living, economical devices and conscious user behaviour! With our tips, you are able to protect the environment and save money!




Do you want to fight "energy guzzlers" in your household? Or would you like to know whether and how your own photovoltaic system pays off?
Our independent energy consultants will advise you individually by telephone, during an appointment at the energy consulting center or at your home about energy saving potentials in your household, energy cost reduction, renewable energy and climate protection. There are many ways to save energy and costs - only an individual solution leads to the best results.

Your costs:
For energy consulting by phone or in the consulting office = EUR 0,-
For the energy consultation on site = EUR 50,-*
*This deductible will be refunded if you implement an eligible measure within 12 months: See Umsetzungsbonus

Beratung gegen Energiearmut: 
The counseling campaign against energy poverty helps people with low incomes to sustainably reduce their energy costs.
Our specially trained and highly skilled energy consultants come to your home to work with you on site to identify savings opportunities and give you simple and individual tips on how to save energy. In addition, you will receive a free energy savings package.

Your costs:
The province of Styria subsidizes each consultation against energy poverty with 200 €, which covers the costs completely and does not incur any additional fees for you!

Your building is getting on in years? Would you like to renovate, but don't know where to start?   
Our independent energy consultants will come to your home and make a thorough survey of your building and your heating. During a detailed energy consultation, all your questions will be answered and you will receive an individual overall renovation concept with step-by-step recommendations for your renovation project.

The construction of an own home is one of the most cost intensive decisions throughout a lifetime. Normally, many questions already appear within the primal planning phase. We will provide you with objective support and present you several construction alternatives and funding possibilities. We also would be happy to create the energy certificate for your home for the application of the building permit and funding. 



The federal programme „klimaaaktiv“ supports free „first consultations“ related to the topics of energyefficient buildings and renovations. The “klimaaktiv”-building standard assists at making decisions and allows assessing and comparing of different building qualities. We are programme partners and will be happy to support you at the declaration of your building as “klimaaktiv”-Gebäude. 



We offer further individual consultation services related to following topics: energy audits according to the Austrian Energy Efficiency Law (Energieeffizienzgesetz), passive-house standard, solar houses, mould, support at the creation of energy certificates, building materials, lightning, ventilation systems, innovative energy carriers and federal funding opportunities. The federal programme “ich tu’s” provides actual information (German) on current funding possibilities.
