Background information

In compliance with the Order No 4-861 of the Minister of Economy and Innovation, on 6 October 2022, the Environmental Projects Management Agency (EPMA) under the Ministry of Environment launched a call for the measure "The deployment of energy-efficient production technologies in industries participating in the EU Emissions Trading System". The measure aims at promoting companies‘ investments in production process equipment and facilities by implementing technologies that increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Content of measure

Only companies operating in manufacturing sector and having a permit issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to emit greenhouse gases can apply for this measure. Such companies can apply for a subsidy from the EU Modernisation Fund.

The eligible costs for the subsidy are the costs of the acquisition and installation of equipment and facilities (e.g. equipment for the use of secondary raw materials and/or by-products of production; control equipment for production units, etc.) linked to the implementation of the project and the achievement of a higher level of energy efficiency.

The maximum amount of the subsidy per applicant is €10 million excluding VAT, taking into account related companies. The funding intensity per applicant is 30% of the eligible costs, which may be increased by 10 percentage points for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.

The total amount available for the call is €30 million. The calls for applications are open from 6 October 2022 to 30 January 2023. The measure is financed by the EU Modernisation Fund.
