Open call

Do you want to improve the energy performance of your enterprise? Do you wish to replace old energy production equipment for captive use with new ones? Are you planning to use waste energy in production processes or to introduce or modernise a system of measurement and regulation? Are you considering modernisation or reconstruction of the power, gas and heat distribution lines in buildings and modernisation of lighting and electricity distribution at industrial premises? Are you interested in installing a RES for captive use? Then the Energy Savings programme is right for you!

Supported activities:

  • Modernisation and reconstruction of electricity, gas and heat distribution in buildings and energy management of production plants to improve efficiency
  • Implementation and modernisation of measurement and control systems, e.g. hardware and network measures including relevant software related to the implementation of energy management system according to ČSN EN ISO 50001
  • Modernisation, reconstruction of existing energy production equipment for captive use leading to increased efficiency
  • Modernisation of lighting systems of buildings and industrial premises (only in case of replacing obsolete technologies with new efficient lighting systems, e.g. light emitting diodes – LED)
  • Implementation of measures to reduce the energy efficiency of buildings in the business sector (insulation of the building envelope, exchange and refurbishment of doors and windows, other construction measures having proven effects on the energy performance of the building, installation of air-conditioning with waste heat recovery units)
  • Use of waste energy in industrial processes
  • Reduction of energy efficiency / increase of energy efficiency of production and technological processes, except for measures on energy sources for distribution, not for captive use leading to increase of its efficiency
  • Installation of RES for the company consumption (biomass utilisation, solar systems, heat pumps and photovoltaic systems)
  • Installation of a cogeneration unit using electricity and heat, or cooling for the company consumption, taking into account its operating conditions
  • Installation of a storage of electric energy (the storage must be operated in energy management, which has its own source of electricity from RES (e.g. PVP) or from CHP (except for coal, light and heavy fuel oils)
