The Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) supportsenergy-related research, pilot and demonstrations projects as long as they correspond to the priorities of the respective programmes and can be suitably co-ordinated with ongoing or planned projects.
Priority is attached to applied and development-related research, and in the case of small-scale hydropower plants consideration is also given to pilot applications of new technologies and to demonstration projects.
Applicants should first submit a brief outline of the project (2-page form).
Wherever possible, sketches and applications should be submitted to the programme head Klaus Jorde in electronic form. He will then co-ordinate each application with the SFOE or other relevant offices.
