Investments in the research and development of modern technologies are key to successfully achieving Germany’s transition to a low-carbon energy supply, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy says in a press release. For that reason, the federal government invested more than 1 billion euros in these areas last year, according to a report accompanying the press release. Roughly 80 percent was invested in the domains of renewable energies and energy efficiency.
