Energy Savings and Energy Efficiency

a programme of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of the Federal Government's 6th Energy Research Programme

The Federal Government’s Energy Concept aims to halve primary energy consumption by 2050 as compared to 2008. This goal requires energy savings at every stage of the energy chain: energy generation, energy conversion, energy transport and, above all, energy consumption by end users. A broad range of funding measures is therefore available from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) for research and development in the field of energy-efficient technologies.

In the Energy Savings and Energy Efficiency priority area of the 6th Energy Research Programme, “Research for an Environmentally Sound, Reliable and Affordable Energy Supply”, BMWi is funding projects that tap the potential for saving energy in all areas of the economy and in private households, that involve research on innovative storage technologies and future power grids and that investigate the development of technologies to boost efficiency during energy conversion.
