Last updated: 5 November 2017
The 2017–2018 ICO-IDAE Energy Efficiency Financing Line has a budget of €70 million, allocated for the improvement of energy consumption in small and medium-sized firms and large firms in the manufacturing and commercial sector. The Official Credit Institute (ICO), makes the necessary funds available to the various financial institutions that want to join the different programmes so that said entities can provide the loans that make it possible to carry out the projects. The risk associated with the transactions is guaranteed 50–50 by the financial institution and the IDAE (Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving) itself through the National Energy Efficiency Fund.
