Current information on the funding

As announced on 2015, July 9th the funding programme „Biomass energy use” has been continuing. In the course of the reorientation of the programme, the focus shifts to practical-oriented approaches that allow for a more flexible power and heat generation from biomass and therefore contribute to a climate-friendly heat market.

Current submission deadline: 2015, September 30th & 2016, September 30th
