Our company is based in the north of Austria, in the idyllic region of Waldviertel, just a few kilometres from the Czech border. You will find us in the small village of Amaliendorf, surrounded by forests and meadows.
For more than 25 years the company Technische Alternative GmbH has been active in the development of controller technology to save energy. Since 1989 we produce in Amaliendorf innovative electronic solar and heating controllers for the domestic and the international market. Our products range from installation-friendly single-purpose controllers to the universal controller, which is freely programmable and can be used as a central control system for the entire heating management.
Economic and efficient use of energy is of great importance to us. We put this into practice also in our own company building. A solar thermal system with a 85 m² collector surface heats a 90 m³ seasonal storage tank, and thus provides a large proportion of our heating energy. All electricity is obtained from a 3 kW photovoltaic system and from shares in wind turbines.
The enlargements in 2009 and 2010 were built according to low energy standars.
