Support the transition to low-carbon energy with public support

Electricity and gas prices are not only a problem for households, but also for many domestic entrepreneurs and companies. With energy prices rising significantly, businesses are looking for ways to reduce energy consumption. Another significant cost item for Czech businesses is material costs. An important way to save considerable resources in this cost category is to develop a strategy in the area of circular economy and the use of secondary raw materials.

Public funding is emerging as an attractive form of support for the above activities. In the private sector, we can see more programmes that provide support for activities that reduce energy consumption, decarbonise industrial enterprises and use secondary raw materials.

Government support for the circular economy, low-carbon energy and cleaner technologies represents an opportunity for companies to invest in new and more efficient technologies or to achieve significant savings, competitive advantages or better visibility of their consumption in specific areas. Public support also has the advantage of enabling a company to achieve its business objectives significantly faster and thus help it grow. The different subsidy programmes focus, for example, on investments in technologies for processing secondary raw materials, insulation of buildings, replacement of heating, air conditioning and lighting sources, as well as upgrading production technologies or investments in the acquisition of photovoltaic systems and other renewable energy sources.

Operational Programme Technologies and Application for Competitiveness (OP TAC)

OP TAC provides opportunities to support smart energy, circular economy, or water management and supports companies of all sizes that implement their projects throughout the Czech Republic but outside the capital city of Prague.

  • Sustainable water management
  • Circular economy
  • Renewable energy – biomethane injection and small hydropower plants
  • Renewable energy – wind power plants
  • Energy savings

Modernisation Fund

Through the Modernisation Fund, businesses can obtain funding to modernise energy systems, improve energy efficiency and increase the share of renewable energy in the final energy consumption of installations covered by the EU ETS. For example, the renovation or replacement of an old energy source with a new, clean energy source or the construction of photovoltaic power plants can be supported.

  • RES+ – New renewable energy sources in the energy sector
  • HEAT – Modernisation of heat energy supply systems
  • ENERG – Improving energy efficiency in business
  • ENERG ETS – Improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in industry in the EU ETS

Just Transformation Operational Programme

The programme is aimed at supporting less developed areas within the Karlovy Vary, Moravian-Silesian and Ústí nad Labem regions and supports, among other things, investments in equipment using renewable energy sources or the reconstruction and modernisation of district heating networks.

If you are interested in more information on the possibilities of subsidy support, do not hesitate to contact us. Experience has taught us that preparing grant applications for similar projects can be very challenging. Applicants must be strategic in their project preparation in order to maximise the benefits of the grant. The Deloitte team has extensive experience in this area. We will be happy to assist you with the design of appropriate grant sources, the preparation of the application for support and the subsequent administration of your project.
