Güssing, Austria Powered Entirely By Renewable Energy

A small town in Austria that had no significant industry or trade business is now thriving thanks to local renewable resources. Güssing (population: 4,000) sits in eastern Austria. In 1988 the region (population: 27,000) was one of the poorest districts in the country. It relied on agriculture, there was no transportation infrastructure, unemployment was high, and 70 percent of those who did have work were commuting to Vienna, 100 miles away.
