In September 2018 the federal cabinet passed the 7th Energy Research Programme. The 6th and 7th Energy Research Programme run parallel until the end of December 2018.

As part of its climate change policy, the Federal Government has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80 to 95 percent by 2050 compared to 1990 levels. The key to achieving this goal is the medium to long-term transformation of energy supply structures towards renewable energies and increased energy efficiency. Therefore, in keeping with the aims of the Federal Government, electricity consumption is to be reduced by 25 percent by 2050 compared to 2008 levels, and the proportion of renewable energy should account for 60 percent of gross final energy consumption in the same year.

As part of the Federal Government's 6th Energy Research Programme, “Research for an Environmentally Sound, Reliable and Affordable Energy Supply”, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funds basic application-oriented research and development projects in the areas of energy efficiency and renewable energies which are jointly implemented by stakeholders from science and industry.
