EUDP (Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program)

EUDP is a funding scheme under the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen), which supports the development and demonstration of innovative energy technologies.

EUDP (Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program) supports private companies and universities to develop and demonstrate new energy technologies. Support is provided following EU state aid rules.

Through EUDP, the Danish Energy Agency aims to promote efficient use of energy and support Denmark to become fossil fuel-free by 2050. Thus, EUDP provides grants for various projects that contribute to the Danish energy industry’s growth and employment.
