Promotion of Low Carbon Economy, Axis 4

Priority Axis 4 focuses on creating incentives for energy efficiency and energy savings as well as for activities that favor renewable sources by public bodies and companies, for a comprehensive sustainable growth both in terms of environment protection and reducing energy costs.

Planned results include: reducing energy consumption for companies and public buildings by 20%, increasing businesses’ renewable energy production by 20% and its use for own purposes by 25%.

Priority objectives

It is based on three objectives:

  • to encourage companies in reducing their energy use and in producing renewable energy for self-consumption, also by creating sustainable eco-friendly manufacturing areas;
  • to promote lower energy consumption in buildings and public facilities, as well as introducing renewable energy systems;
  • to promote sustainable mobility in urban areas.

This Priority axis has been allocated € 56.4 million up to December 31, 2020. In order to support the regional healthcare system in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic emergency, some of the selected projects were moved for funding under the National Development and Cohesion Fund.
