The SMEs sector and the accommodation & food industries have been dramatically affected by the measures taken to counter the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The current legislative regulation aims at granting financial aids for the recovery of the entrepreneurial environment, compensating some losses of financial capital and human resources, but also the need to develop the infrastructure for non-polluting road transport vehicles.
In order to support companies in the accommodation & food industry, but also to promote renewable energy forms, Small and Medium Enterprises and companies in the accommodation & food industry can receive a financial aid of up to €100,000 for purchase of photovoltaic panels and charging stations for electric cars, through the ELECTRIC UP program (representing a maximum of 90% of the value of eligible expenses). An initial budget of RON 476 million (approximately €100 million) has been allocated to this program, which aims to help 1,000 companies. The amounts necessary for the implementation of the Financing Program are ensured annually, from the state budget, within the approved budgetary provisions for the financing of projects in energy efficiency and the development of renewable energy production capacities.
