Topics funding announcement 2018

Power & Heat


  • Technologies for electricity and heat generation and their combined use


  • The focus is on the practical improvement of plant components, concepts and flexibility, of control, regulation and automation technology as well as solutions for emission reduction. In the field of heating, funding will be provided, among other things, for the optimisation of compact micro-fired and fuel-flexible furnaces for supplying heat to low-energy and passive houses, neighbourhood/regional heating networks and for new approaches to biomass-based hybrid and multibrid systems.
