The Energy Research Programme supports the implementation of Danish energy policy. It supports energy projects with strategic/practical perspectives over a two- to three-year time frame. No technologies are excluded from the programme other than nuclear power, however, the programme focuses on technologies where R & D strategies have been developed. These include biomass for electricity and heat production, wind energy, photovoltaics, fuel cells, efficient use of energy, hydrogen technologies, biofuels and wave energy. Financial support of up to 100% is available under special circumstances. The average support level is about 50% of eligible costs.
