ALEXANDER HOFER

  • Nationality: Austrian
  • Position: Companies Group
  • Since Alexander is studying Urban Renewable Energy Technologies at the University of Applied Sciences (UAS) Technikum Vienna the Exchange program at Novia UAS Vasa is an appropriate complement to his studies. His main objectives is to provide alternative energy resources within and for cities. Using solar energy additionally to the set up of passive houses is the basis of his studies. (However, Alexander is occupationally associated with advanced companies controlling a number of wind farms as well as district heating plants and a biogas plant. This integration of economy and education he believes is the basis of his career.)
    On this account the impression of visiting companies in the Nordic European Region dealing with problems in this fields gives him the unique opportunity to interconnect knowledge in and from Austria with different solutions.
