This programme is the long-discussed successor to the Fourth Energy Research Programme (started in 1996). This programme continuously sets the framework for public RD&D support in energy technologies at large. Support for the development of renewable energies is only one part of the overall funding scheme. Renewable energies receive funding from several sources: Project-based funding for all technologies is offered by the BMU, while the BMVEL supports only Bioenergy. Institutional support, especially for centres of the Helmholtz Association and the promotion of networks of basic research, is given by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

This record is superseded by:Sixth Energy Research Programme (6.Energieforschungsprogramm - Forschung für eine umweltschonende, zuverlässige und bezahlbare Energieversorgung)
