As of the first of February 2013, companies can apply for an ecological investment subsidy (EP PLUS) for investments included on a limitative list with eligible technologies. The subsidy amount is determined by the type of investment (environment, energy consumption, renewable energy, combined heat and power), the efficiency of the technology, the size of the company and the eligibility for a bonus (company has an environment management system ...). In addition to EP PLUS, companies can also apply for strategic ecological investment support as of the 20th of December 2012 for investments in strategic green high-tech solutions. Because of their nature, these strategic investments are not included on the limitative list with eligible technologies for EP PLUS.


Recently, the system has undergone changes in the percentage of support (depending on the size of the company and the type of investment) and technologies eligible for support. Latest changes became effective on 20 December 2012.
