Support in the form of funding and aid
Energy aid speeds up the implementation of investmentsThe government aids the energy efficiency investments of businesses. The energy aid granted by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment is discretionary and granted within the framework of appropriations, regardless of a company’s size.
The energy aid promotes particularly the adoption of new energy technology and the creation of markets for them. Energy efficiency investments relying on conventional technology may be granted energy aid only if the business or municipality in question is party to an energy efficiency agreement.
The government aid is aimed particularly at energy efficiency investments which would not be realised without support. The aid aims to improve the investment’s financial profitability and reduce the financial risks involved in the adoption of new technology.
