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.
