Key message

In 2020, the amount of incentives for the implementation of measures related to energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy sources (RES) in non-ETS industry amounted to almost EUR 5.9 million, which is four times more than the previous year and by far the highest in the observed period. Only Eco Fund incentives are considered in this amount, as the projects co-financed under the Operational Programme for the Implementation of the European Cohesion Policy in the 2014–2020 Period (OP ECP) are not prepared in such a way that the monitoring of effects related to climate targets would be possible, since also the set targets are not climate orientated. In total, EUR 13.3 million of incentives were paid in the period 2010–2020, which represents just over a third of the amount of incentives paid by the Eco Fund for the implementation of EE and RES measures in households in 2020 alone.

In the future, it is necessary to use funds available for climate-related projects in a manner more orientated to the climate targets, to set concrete targets in relation to the transition to a low-carbon economy (e.g. reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, increasing energy production from RES), and to ensure systematic monitoring of these incentives.
