Local authorities can apply in four rounds, where the final deadline is November 16. Slovenia is covering only 15% of the project for energy renovation from its budget and the rest is from European funds. The rate of cofinancing for works on municipal structures is capped at 40%.

The Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy has given the goahead for energy conservation measures in local communities in four rounds. Municipalities can apply to have as much as 40% of eligible costs covered in works on buildings they own and use. Slovenia earmarked EUR 25 million for the energy renovation project of which EUR 21.25 million or 85% comes from the European Union’s cohesion funds.

The package is planned to be spent through 2022 via contracts, construction and groups of endeavors including public–private partnerships, the documents showed. The managing authority for European regional, structural and social funds noted the Ministry of Infrastructure is responsible for the process.

According to the terms of the public call issued by the Government of Slovenia, expenses of other works will also be covered in case they are required for energy renovation. The first deadline to submit applications is March 30. The remaining three are June 15, September 14 and November 16. They will be opened within eight days.

The basic cofinancing is available for operations involving the façade, roofs and floors and technical systems like heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

The minister of infrastructure has the task to pick the municipalities and allocate funds. Alenka Bratušek, the incumbent, has just presented the former Yugoslav republic’s national energy and climate plan.

External contractors are eligible for no more than 12% of the total sum excluding value-added tax. The cap for information and communication costs is 1% and the maximum for salaries was set at 3%. The state said it wouldn’t approve cofunding for unforeseen and additional work, real estate tax, purchasing of used equipment and legal fees.
