About Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP)

The Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP) co-finances the development and demonstration of new solutions within energy technology. This is to support Denmark's energy and climate policy objectives of a 70% reduction in CO2 equivalent emissions by 2030 and climate neutrality in 2050. The fund has dedicated 204M DKK for projects in 2022.

Opportunities with EUDP

EUDP can support private or public companies, universities, GTS institutes, as well as interdisciplinary consortia between these. EUDP has described 7 project types that they support:

  1. Development and demonstration projects including research
  2. Preliminary studies
  3. International participation and cooperation in the IEA
  4. International cooperation under Mission Innovation
  5. EU Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan)
  6. Technology Partnerships
  7. Dissemination projects

The fund does not set a limit to the amount you can apply for but refers to the EU state aid rules and the block exemption regulation, which sets a maximum amount for state aid for experimental development to €15M per year. EUDP co-finances between 60% and 90% of the project budget depending on the type of organization that is supported and the type of project that is supported.

Requirements for EUDP

To support Denmark's energy and climate policy objectives, EUDP has identified 8 focus areas that they want to support until 2030:

  1. More green electricity - and for more purposes
  2. Energy efficiency
  3. Passenger transport and light goods transport
  4. Heavy transport and Power-to-X on a large scale
  5. Heat and heat storage
  6. Green process energy
  7. Flexible use, network expansion and digitization
  8. CO2 capture, storage and utilization

In addition, the fund has several criteria, which they emphasize that an application must explain and / or the projects have a clear effect on:

  • The purpose of the project
  • The market
  • The green and commercial effects of the project
  • Organization
  • Incentive effect
  • Project schedule, structure and feasibility
  • Budget and financing
  • Dissemination
  • Research content

However, the EUDP emphasizes that they can also co-finance projects that fall outside the focus areas, provided that the project meets the general requirements and is technologically and commercially anchored in the Danish business community.
