Business Partners and Clients
In our three areas of specialization, we interact with a large variety of business partners and clients.
Kommunalkredit Public Consulting is a long-standing partner of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism. Back in 1993, we started managing the federal environmental funding program (municipal water management, environmental funding for businesses). In 2003, KPC was entrusted with the management of the Austrian JI/CDM purchase program for CO2 certificates and in 2007, with the funding tool for climate-friendly mobility called "klimaaktiv mobil." Since 2009, we award funding provided by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy as part of the federal renovation program. In December 2013, KPC was put in charge of managing the flood protection funding.
The Climate and Energy Fund, created in 2007 by the Austrian government, makes an important contribution towards the goal of reaching sustainable energy supply by increasing energy efficiency and growing the share of renewable energy sources. We assist the management of the Climate and Energy Fund in processing the funds awarded and in contracting, thus helping ensure that all funds of the Climate and Energy Fund are awarded efficiently. On behalf of the Climate and Energy Fund, we award funding for large-scale funding programs, e.g. for photovoltaic facilities and wood heating systems targeted at a large audience of mostly private households, innovative flagship projects, the implementation of model regions and support for the Austrian Climate Research Program.
Since 2009, KPC has been managing the so-called renovation program on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Sustainability and Tourism and the Austrian Federal Ministry for Digital, Business and Enterprise. Incentive funding is provided for projects that promote thermal insulation of residences and businesses.
The Austrian Federal Ministry of Finance entrusted KPC with the management of the “Craftsperson Bonus“ funding initiative for the calendar years 2014 and 2015. This bonus provides financial support to private individuals who renovate their residence, maintain it or modernize it and rely on the services of a craftsperson or authorized business for the job.
In 2009, KPC was entrusted by the Clearing and Settlement Agency for Green Electricity (OeMAG) with the technical evaluation of hydroelectric plants as part of the Green Energy Funding Initiative.
Following the “one-stop shop” principle, KPC has, since 2010, been handling funding applications from the provinces of Salzburg and Tyrol and reviewing them for the possible award of province-specific funding. Vienna has entrusted KPC with the award of province-specific funding for photovoltaic facilities. We award the funds for the province of Vorarlberg on a year-by-year basis. Since 2015, KPC has been handling the “e-mobility for multitrack vehicles” funding initiative, which is part of the “Climate and environment pact of the province of Salzburg” program targeted at individual applicants.
"A sustainable approach to doing business means primarily to avoid waste altogether, followed by recycling and waste disposal." In line with this principle, Altstoff Recycling Austria Aktiengesellschaft (ARA) has promoted action directed at waste prevention and awareness-raising. As part of the waste prevention funding initiative (2005 to 2014), KPC awarded all funds on behalf of ARA.
KPC has supported the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in many projects, the latest being a credit line program for energy efficiency in Poland, Russia and Ukraine.
On behalf of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), we worked on improving water management in Moldova.
On behalf of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), we worked on improving the building sector for private residences in Ukraine during a pilot project.
KPC supported the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) in technical and scientific matters and provides assistance for the coordination of projects in the water sector.
As part of its "Green Initiative," the European Investment Bank (EIB) awards credit lines to selected financial intermediaries in Central and Eastern Europe, with the goal of funding energy efficiency projects in the manufacturing industry and the building sector as well as supporting investments in renewable energy. KPC is part of a project consortium spearheaded by the German GFA Consulting Group and as such helps implement these projects.
During several European Union projects, KPC implemented many projects, especially in Central and Eastern Europe. In addition, we contributed to a blending activities study.
On behalf of the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), KPC helps improve municipal services in Moldova.
On behalf of international organizations such as the European Union, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), we have carried out many surveys and studies about emissions savings and prevention potential.
