Key message

In 2021, 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 EUR 4.1 million, i.e. 30 % less than the previous year. In 2022, according to currently available data, the amount was further reduced to EUR 1.1 million. 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) were not prepared in such a way that the monitoring of effects related to climate targets would be possible. In total, EUR 17.4 million of incentives were paid in the period 2010–2021, which represents only 47% of the amount of incentives paid by the Eco Fund for the implementation of EE and RES measures in households in 2021 alone.

Funds available for climate-related projects should be used in a manner more orientated to the climate targets, concrete targets in relation to the transition to a low-carbon economy should be set (e.g. reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, increasing energy production from RES), and a systematic monitoring of effects of these incentives should be ensured.
