The promotion of energy research is a strategic element in any energy policy that is also designed to safeguard the future. Such funding helps to implement the Federal Government’s targets for the energy sector and climate linked to Germany’s energy transition. Federal Government funding for energy research is based on the Energy Research Programme. Funding allocated under this programme is used to support both specific projects with a limited timeframe, as well as large research communities over long periods of time. In addition to enabling the development of competitive, innovative and sustainable energy and efficiency technologies for the energy transition, research funding also generates sustainable growth and high-skilled jobs in Germany, as well as creating large export potential. At the same time, Germany also makes an important contribution to meeting global climate targets.
