Dr. Robert Habeck

Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Action
"Anthropogenic climate change is one of the major challenges of our time. Innovations in the energy sector are crucial to achieve climate neutrality in Germany by 2045. International cooperation is an important component to this end. Mission Innovation 2.0 offers an ideal platform for governments, business and academia to share experience and make clean energy affordable and accessible for all, and at the same time boost the energy transition."

Within the MI framework Germany reports project funding on clean energy technologies. In comparison to the data Germany reports to the International Energy Agency (IEA), this does not include institutional funding and project funding for nuclear safety research. It does include some programmes on clean energy technology (specifically SINTEG, EnEff.Gebäude.2050 and Wärmenetze 4.0) that were launched after the start of MI and that are not included in the data reported to the IEA, as these programmes are not part of the Energy Research Programme of the Federal Government.
