7th Energy Research Programme "Innovations for Energy System Transition" adopted.

The 7th Energy Research Programme "Innovations for the Energy System Transistion" was adopted by the Federal Cabinet in September 2018.

By 2022, the 7th Energy Research Programme has been earmarked by the Federal Government for a total of around 6 billion euros.
A central concern of the current Programme is to strengthen technology and innovation transfer.
For this purpose, real energy system transformation laboratories (Reallabore) will be established as a new pillar of energy research.
In addition, the access of start-ups to research funding is to be improved.
The energy research programme addresses both technology-specific funding priorities and cross-technology cross-sectoral issues.

Cross-system topics such as sector coupling and acceptance issues also play an important role here.
