The Council of Ministers has agreed to authorise the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE) a call for aid for investment in thermal energy production facilities with renewable energy sources in Andalusia and two calls for investment aid in Electric power generation facilities with renewable energy sources in the autonomous communities of Andalusia and Extremadura.
In total, €136.3 million will be allocated to boost renewable energies in both regions - €124.3 million in Andalusia and €12 million in Extremadura. In these calls, the aid will range on average between 20 and 30% of the cost of the projects, and will be assigned, by competitive competition, depending on the level of maturity, technological innovation and management, assessing its link with the Just Transition and the Demographic Challenge or job creation.
These are the first calls for a renewable energy promotion package initially endowed with €316 million, of which the calls for the rest of the Autonomous Communities are being finalised, in collaboration with the respective autonomous governments.
