Fascinated by animals and plants from early childhood in his parents’ farm in Oberhofen am Irrsee (near Salzburg, Austria), Reinhard Sperr became self-employed as early as at 23. The focus was also on regional gardening and garden design in and around Salzburg, so as early as in 2005, he planted his first energy wood with poplars.
Loving very much the idea of using extensive, but very fast-growing energy woods and energy grasses to contribute a portion to energy revolution, he expanded across the borders of Austria rapidly. Meanwhile, about 300-400 hectares (as of the beginning of 2020s) of his energy plants are growing in most European countries and beyond. They substitute more than two million liters of heating oil or a CO2-discharge of over 6,600 tons – and this is per annum!
Since the organic production method has always been the basis for Sperr’s commercial activities (Climate Alliance member since 2007!), together with both sister companies (Der Service Gärtner and Jumbograshecke), he decided to participate in the CO2-Free Mobile project in 2014. In this manner, together with his customers and employees, he supports sustainable management, including for coming generations.
If you would like to be proactively involved in energy revolution or be an energy farmer or self-supporter, the Master Gardener Reinhard Sperr and his team will assist you in this with a wide-ranging offer of energy plants for any location and with their long-standing expertise!
