Sunna Alm: a carbon-neutral mountain restaurant

“Sunna Alm” is a mountain restaurant located in Pitztal, Austria. The restaurant is opened two thirds of the year and has opted for renewable energy to heat its building. Thanks to a combined used of solar and geothermal energies, it is the highest passive-energy restaurant of the Alpine region.

The combination of solar and geothermal energy at the Sunna Alm restaurant makes the restaurant a 100% carbon neutral building in terms of heating energy. The primary energy consumption is reduced by 100%; likewise, 100% of energy-related carbon emissions are avoided. Given the annual 235 open days, the system enables a saving of 35.000 litres of fuel oil each year.

The Sunna Alm restaurant is an example of infrastructure which innovated on the way to carbon neutrality. The smart combination of geothermal and solar energies allows considerable savings in terms of carbon emissions and provides inspiration towards a more sustainable tourism in the mountains, even at high altitude.
