Messestand der E-Control


Besides calling us or using one of the other ways to get in touch, you can always come to an energy-themed trade fair. We are happy to meet you face to face at fairs all across the country to discuss your questions about electricity, gas and green electricity.

For instance, people often visit us at these events to discuss issues such as:

  • Which electricity and natural gas suppliers are there? What are their rates and prices, and which additional services are available?
  • Am I paying too much for electricity and gas?
  • My bill is quite confusing; what do the technical terms on the bill really mean?
  • How can I save energy?

Come to a trade fair and we’ll be happy to take a look at these and other questions together.

If you have any questions about which trade fairs we will be at, please contact Ms Roswitha Hann at roswitha.hann@e-control.at

If you encounter difficulties when trying to get your electricity or gas connection enabled or disabled, if are not satisfied with the quality of service of your electricity or gas supplier or network operator or if you would like to appeal against your bill, you can send an informal application for dispute settlement to our dispute settlement service. However, before addressing our service, you should at least try to find a solution with the undertaking directly.

If you write to us, please tell us right away:

  • What happened and which are the facts of the case - from your point of view?
  • Which electricity or gas company are you referring to?
  • What could be a satisfactory solution to the dispute?

Please include all relevant documents such as bills, payment reminders, warnings that you would be cut off and any other correspondence with the company.

You can submit your written application by e-mail, fax or post.
