Croatia has issued public calls for EUR 12 million in subsidies aimed at increasing the use of solar, geothermal, and marine energy.

The three separate public calls were issued by the Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds, and the subsidies will be funded under the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism 2014-2021. The subsidies will cover 85% of project costs.

The first public call, worth EUR 7.4 million, supports pilot projects for the installation of rooftop photovoltaic (PV) power plants, with the aim of increasing the installed capacity for harnessing solar energy.

Energy Production from the Sea has a budget of EUR 1.5 million

The invitation titled Energy Production from the Sea, has a budget of EUR 1.5 million, to back pilot projects and pre-investment studies for installing seawater heat pumps for heating and cooling.

The third call supports the development of technical documentation for geothermal energy projects. The available amount is EUR 3 million.

The application deadline for all three public calls is November 29.

The calls are open to all public or private entities, commercial or non-commercial, and non-governmental organizations established as a legal entity in Croatia or any of the donor states (Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein).
