Hungary: New Money for Commercial and Public Solar Thermal Systems

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 26, 2013

From the end of 2011 on, the Hungarian government had asked the European Commission (EC) to allow the transfer of funds not spent within the Transport Operational Programme, KözOP, to the Environment and Energy Operational Programme, KEOP. The EC finally agreed in September 2012 and the government was able to announce the first tenders a few months later. “The Hungarian wish to rearrange the EU money was due to the huge funding demand for energy projects, which meant KEOP had been running out of resources,” says Katalin Zsóka, Assistant of Béla Glattfelder, a member of the European Parliament who founded Hungary’s solar association in November 2010.
