Evaluation of Austria's Environmental Support Scheme 2011 - 2013 (according to § 14 Abs. 1 UFG and § 3c WBFG) - economic analysis

A multiplier analysis based on the current input-output table of Statistics Austria is carried out for the various support areas. In a first step, the investments for environmental projects are assigned to receiving sectors. The evaluation yields aggregate and sectoral effects on value added and employment resulting from these investments. A special focus is laid on the effects related to the funds granted for thermal refurbishment of buildings. In addition, the role of EU cofinancing of environmental investment projects is assessed.
