Nenad Stanković, energy and mining secretary of Serbia’s Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, signed contracts with users of secretariat’s incentives from grants programmes for co-financing efficient indoor lighting and energy efficiency measures in public institutions.

The funds for indoor lighting are intended for entities in the fields of education, science, culture, physical culture, pupils’ and students’ dormitories and restaurants, healthcare, social services, child care, social security, animal healthcare and public information in minority languages. Users can finance replacement of existing lighting with equipment that saves energy or for replacement, purchase or mounting of supervision and lighting control systems. There were 15 grants for users in 13 municipal units, and the overall sum was RSD 41 million (EUR 341,000). The biggest individual grant was EUR 714,000.

Co-financing budget for energy efficiency was RSD 115 million (EUR 957,000), the secretariat’s biggest programme this year. Only 19 out of 75 applications were valid, and EUR 818,500 was allocated. Maximum possible grant had been EUR 208,000 but the biggest individual contract, the one with the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad, the provincial capital, is worth EUR 153,000.
