Since December 1988, EUROSOLAR Austria organizes a regulars' table for its members and friends each third Thursday of the month. The regulars' table offers the possibility to renew and/or expand the knowledge about renewable energy energies, electromobility as well as the rational use of energy use. In addition, there is the possibility to establish contacts with entrepreneurs, representatives of authorities, politics and other like-minded persons.
Each meeting has a particular topic and focus. The meeting point is a restaurant in Vienna: Restaurant "Zum Hagenthaler" at Wallgasse 32 in 1060 Vienna.
