New deadline for project ideas on biomass use
Project outlines in the funding area "Energy-efficient use of biogenic residual and waste materials" can be submitted until 1 March 2021.
A further submission deadline for 2021 has also already been set. In addition to Monday, 1 March, by 2 p.m. at the latest, the next deadline is Wednesday, 1 September, also by 2 p.m. at the latest. Project outlines submitted on time will be considered in the subsequent evaluation round.
Bioenergy can be stored, used flexibly and decentralised and therefore provides an ideal supplement to renewable energy sources such as sun and wind. In order to bring appropriate technologies to the market, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is promoting the further development of energy-energy-efficient biomass use.
Especially the high-quality energy-efficient utilisation of biogenic waste is to be promoted. Research focuses on efficient technologies for power and heat generation and their combined use through combined heat and power generation. Demonstration and pilot projects will additionally be supported. The support research on bioenergy provides detailed information on promoting the energy-efficient use of biomass.
