The European Investment Bank (EIB) today launched the sixth edition of its Climate Survey. These are some of the most striking results of this annual survey conducted in August and September 2023. Running since 2018, the EIB Climate Survey offers insights into the climate change-related views of people in major economies around the world, with more than 30 000 respondents in the European Union, the United States, China, India, Japan, the United Kingdom, UAE, Canada and South Korea. The EIB is the lending arm of the European Union and the world’s largest multilateral lender for climate action projects.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) and Erste Bank Austria are financing the construction of the new Engelhartstetten wind farm with loans of up to €79,2 million to WLK energy. The wind farm situated in Lower Austria is comprised of 11 wind turbines with total generating capacity of 45 MW. This is equivalent to the average demand from 39 000 homes and will save 980 tonnes of CO2 compared to the traditional electricity production mix in Austria.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) has agreed to support EVN AG’s investments in wind farms with an overall capacity of 103 MW, providing 72 650 Austrian households with green electricity. The project is expected to be completed by early 2025, and the €110 million loan to co-finance it is part of the EIB’s contribution to the REPowerEU plan.
