Depending on where you are staying in Vienna, there are basically two possibilities to reach the Energy ADE Workshop by means of public transportation. In any case, please consider at least circa 30 to 45 minutes travel time if coming from the city centre.
a) Take the S-Bahn 1 or 2 (northeastbound to Gänserndorf/Mistelbach) and get off at "Siemensstraße" station. From there the Techbase building is just 6 minutes walk. Use the huge Siemens building as reference, walk past it till you see the Giefinggasse on your left.
If you are not living close to the S-Bahn line, you may consider reaching "Floridsdorf" by unterground U6 (the brown one) and the continue the trip as explained above.
b) Take the unterground U1 (the red one, eastbound to Leopoldau) and get off at the "Kagranaer Platz" station. Get on the bus 31A (bound to Großjedlersdorf/Jochbergengasse) till the "Siemensstr./H.-von-Buol-Gasse" bus stop. From there the Techbase building is 1 minute walk.
A visual example of the two routes can be seen here (starting from "Wien Mitte/Landstrasse" station as example).

For reference, an overview of the S-Bahn and underground network can be found here. 24h, 48h and 72h tickets for all public transports in Vienna cost 7,60, 13,30 and 16,50 Euros, respectively.
