As a farmer, Mr. Karl Weiss has always been close to nature. He has been working in renewable energy since the 1980s, making him a pioneer in the Austrian wind power sector.
His first project - the Pottenbrunn wind farm - was one of the first wind farms in Austria and was connected to the grid in 1998. In 2003, Mr. Weiss founded the company Ökowind Ernereuerbare Energieerzeugungs GmbH, which still exists today. Since then he has contributed his decades of experience to the company as a managing director and project planner.
After graduating with honours from the HTL St. Pölten higher technical college (industrial engineering department), he is now fully involved in his father's business.
He is convinced of the future potential of renewable energy and wants to actively help shape the development of alternative forms of energy in Austria. Julian Weiss is responsible for the technical planning, project design, and implementation support of the projects.
