Description:

Funding estimate of Special Programme for Climate Change for 2015 envisaged allocating 30 million EUR (approximately 17 million EUR for energy efficiency projects and 13 million EUR for RES and other projects) for measures implemented to reach a quantitative reduction of GHG emissions. These measures envelope energy production and consumption efficiency increase in residential (multi-apartment and single or two flat houses) and public buildings, as well as other measures which effectively reduce GHG emissions in energy, industry, construction, transport, agriculture, waste management and other sectors.

The main focus of the allocation of finances are set on these criteria:

  • At least 40 % of funds must be allocated to projects which increase energy efficiency;
  • At least 40% of funds must be allocated to projects which promote use of renewable energy and environmentally friendly technologies;
  • The rest of the proceeds may be used for various projects, without compulsory quantifiable emissions reduction, such as various climate change related measures that promote science, research and development, awareness, education and climate finance to developing countries, etc.
