Provincial Secretariat for Energy and Mineral Resources of Vojvodina closed three calls for applications for grants to co-finance projects of farms in the region. Programmes cover energy sustainability, particularly for dairy cow farming and goat and sheep farms, with utilization of solar thermal power for warm water and heat recuperation systems, the institution’s website said. Applications were received from August 5.

In the section for energy-sustainable farms, overall sum of incentives is  RSD 35 million (EUR 291,000) and funds are intended for activities including heating, cooling and ventilation in animal farms, utilization of renewables, especially off-grid solar panel systems, and reconstruction of heating systems that run on fossil fuel.

Grants for dairy and cattle farming will co-fund thermal solar energy systems for warm water, and recuperation equipment for milk cooling. For cow farms there is a budget of EUR 166,300 and for goats and sheep the programme is worth EUR 83,200.
