Funding programme "Biomass energy use"

With this programme, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) funds projects on cost- and energy-efficient biomass use in the power and heat market.


What is being researched?

Technologies | Power & Heat | Flexibilisation | Use of Residues | Market Potentials | Sustainability & Efficiency
The prior focus of the programme is the practical-oriented testing and validation of innovative, energy- and cost-efficient technologies for (combined) power and heat supply as well as optimization of procedures and processes for demonstration and pilot purposes.


Intelligent networking

Innovative ideas often arise in close cooperation between science, research and industry. Therefore, the programme focuses on the benefits of strategic networking and promotes support for interdisciplinary research collaborations and the exchange of knowledge between the project partners as well as with the expert community.
