The Funding programme "Biomass energy use"

The challenges of world-wide climate protection can only be met by a successful realization of the Energy Transition (The German Energiewende). This transition includes the expansion of renewable energy sources and the increase of energy efficiency, in addition to phasing out nuclear power. To achieve the ambitious targets of the German Federal Government, the development of promising, cost- and energy-efficient technologies shall be pushed forward.
High-quality bioenergy serves as an ideal partner in the renewable energy mix due to its various advantages, such as high flexibility, good storage properties and decentralized application possibilities. At the same time, the limited biomass has high potentials for a more efficient use.

Therefore, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) funds the programme for “Promoting research and development projects for cost- and energy-efficient biomass energy use in the power and heat market” (short: “Biomass energy use”).

The programme mainly aims at supporting forward-looking technologies and optimizing of procedures and processes that enable an efficient, economic and sustainable use of biomass. In this context the contribution to supply security plays a key role.
