The Kyoto Rotation Fund is active since the 2012, 15th of March. SMEs, PAs or individuals can benefit from a 0,5% interest rate financial tool to realize their energy efficiency projects (including building sector), distributed generation (tri-generation in particular), or small renewable energy production plants. The initial size of the fund is equal to 600M€. Law 134 of 7 August 2012 "measures for the development of young emplyment in the green economy" modified the measures to be incentivized through the Kyoto Fund.


An agreement on air quality signed in December 2015 introduced new relevant measures.
