Overview

Background & Policy context

40 years ago the first energy research programme of the German government was launched. For the first time this programme provided a structure for non-nuclear energy research. Funded are single projects of limited duration as well as large research institutions over longer time spans.

Strategic Objectives

The programme follows the following strategic goals:

  • Guarantee security of energy supply
  • Lower GHG emissions 80% to 95% by 2050 compared to 1990 levels;
  • Extend the share of renewable energies at final energy demand to 60%;
  • Trim building assets to become largely energy-neutral by then;

Moreover, a number of economic aspects are considered by the programme es well, including the support of German undertakings to keep and expend their leading position in the glob

Programme organisation

The programme funds large resarch organisations as well as individual projects. Calls are provided by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and are administrated by the Research Centre Jühlich (FZJ) and the TÜ'V Rheinland.
