In 2020, about 1,000 projects and activities for publicly funded energy-related research, development and first-of-a-kind demonstration amounted to 155.2 million euros. As in previous years, the area of "energy-efficient end-use technologies" is in first place with expenditures of 76.8 million euros. The areas "smart grids and storage", "renewable energy" and "cross-cutting issues" follow by a comparatively wide margin.
