Funding Programmes

Energy and Technology Development and Demonstration // EUDP


The purpose of the Danish EUDP programme is to strengthen R&D and demonstration efforts in energy technologies and to develop Danish business potential in this area. EUDP, short for Energiteknologiske Udviklings- og Demonstrationsprogram which translates into Energy and Technology Development and Demonstration Programme, is organised by the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen).

EUDP emphasises the inclusion of private companies in project consortia with a view to commercialise project results. Moreover, EUDP gives priority to technologies relevant for the Danish Energy Policy objectives, focusing on strengthening the security of energy supply and making Denmark independent of fossil fuels by 2050. By tradition, many funded EUDP projects include a knowledge-generating element and most applying consortia involve private as well as public partners.

Funding applications can be targeted as either:

  • Development: Project where demonstration leads to additional development before market introduction.
  • Demonstration: Projects involving experimental testing of a technology, a system, or a method in a reality-like setup, with a clear view to subsequent market introduction.

Commercial Opportunities

EUDP offers the opportunity for improved competitiveness and market positions, through grants to Danish organisations or consortium with a Danish coordinator.

  • Energy and Technology: Projects should hold relevance according to overall EUDP priorities, including Danish energy policies and strategies as well as commercial ambitions held by EUDP. Projects should be innovative, and objectives should be realistic.
  • Commercial Elements: Projects should target well-defined market needs and clients; display potential economic growth; and include private companies with a view to commercialisation.
  • Organisation and Knowledge Dissemination: Projects should involve all required competences; include partners from relevant parts of the value chain; and contribute to knowledge dissemination.
