Croatia’s Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund (FZOEU) has issued a fresh invitation to apply for co-financing home renewables systems, offering a total of about EUR 1.49 million in grants and adding solar hot water collectors to the incentives scheme, according to a statement on the fund’s website.

In the new round, grants for co-financing renewables systems at family houses can cover 40%, 60% or 80% of the project cost, depending on the location of the house.

The maximum grant amount per project is about EUR 10,000, including VAT, and the invitation will be open until the funds are used up, or until the end of the year.

Eligible to apply are owners or co-owners of legally built houses, with over 50% of the surface area intended for residential purposes, and with up to three residential units or a gross construction area of up to 600m2, the FZOEU said.

To avoid the risk of unprofessionally installed systems, this year the FZOEU will also co-finance costs of design development and supervision, according to the statement.

In the previous invitation, published last fall, the FZOEU offered to co-finance the procurement and installation of biomass boilers and heat pumps at family houses, while incentives for solar systems were announced for this year.

Incentives for home solar power systems planned for Q4 2019

The FZOEU plans to continue to encourage the use of renewable energy sources, especially by individuals, and intends to start co-financing the installation of small solar power systems at family houses in the final quarter of this year, according to the statement.

With its program of incentives for home renewable energy systems, the FZOEU wants to enable citizens to reduce their consumption of energy, as well as use locally-available energy sources, such as biomass, geothermal energy, and solar energy.

In this way, the beneficiaries will be able to cut energy costs and become less susceptible to prices of fossil fuels, according to the statement.
