EE4inG-2 – Accompanying research for energy efficiency in industry and commerce

Client Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Klimaschutz (BMWK)

Duration November 2021 – November 2027

Background

Energy and resource efficiency make important contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and curbing companies’ increasing resource costs. In this way, they help to ensure the competitiveness of German industry. The aim of research funding to increase energy efficiency for and with German industry and commerce is to advance innovations and technological progress and thus open up new technical and economic efficiency potential.

Production Technology

Goals and Results

EE4Ing 2 carries out an accompanying cross-evaluation of applied energy efficiency research and its funding through the federal energy research program in the area of industry and commerce. The federal government’s funding policy goals are taken into account as a central guiding principle. The central goals of EE4Ing 2 are to evaluate the effectiveness and benefits of selected energy research program projects, as well as to recognize and assess the relevance of current and emerging technology trends and innovation topics. Based on this, recommendations for action are developed for the BMWK. In addition, EE4Ing 2 promotes the exchange of relevant actors in the innovation system (industry, science, politics), for which the energy research networks and in particular the FNW INDG provide an established framework.
