Abstract: 
The core objective of this work is to find out whether a community in the Alps is able to fulfill all there energy requirement out of their own local resources in the 21st century. In order to demonstrate the possibilities for an independent energy supply shown in the community Kötschach-Mauthen, we need to know its energy demand, as well as the distribution of the demand within the individual sectors. For the estimation of the energy demand predominantly data of Statistik Austria were used in addition to analysis of the district heating system and the local electricity grid. As a result the energy demand of Kötschach-Mauthen with 102 GWh/a is in contrast to the current local renewable energy production of 75.6 GWh/a. Therefore from the existing renewable energy plants in the community, 343 % of the electricity demand, 55 % of the heat demand and 0 % of the fuel demand are met by renewable energy carriers. The total gradient of energy self sufficiency of the community can be calculated with 74.2%. The most important conclusion of the evaluation of future additional potentials for renewable local based energy production with 39.8 GWh/a and for energy saving actions with 13 GWh/a is that a self-sufficient energy supply of the community of Kötschach-Mauthen is until 2020, in principle, to high degree up to 100% possible. 3 different feasibility studies show examples for possible measures in the electricity and heat production and for mobility services with the production of 7.6 GWh/a, raising the degree of energy self sufficiency from 74% to 82 % in the community.
