Slovenian Environmental Public Fund extended last year’s public calls for grants for electric vehicles and announced it would publish new ones. The institution determined grant levels to be between EUR 3,000 and EUR 7,500 depending on the vehicle, compared to last year’s EUR 2,000 to EUR 5,000, according to portal Invest in Slovenia. Citizens can also apply for loans with favourable conditions consistent with environmentally friendly investment.

Eco Fund plans to publish yearly tenders in February. Individuals, the state, local communities and companies will be eligible to apply. Since 2011, the fund has made available EUR 1.8 million euros in grants for e-cars, while it has actually paid out EUR 1.1 million for the purchase or remodelling of 274 vehicles. Apart from the grants, the fund also made available EUR 15 million in low-interest loans for environmental investments.
