Malta: Delay in New Incentives

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on December 28, 2012

It is still unclear if there will be another subsidy scheme in Malta in 2013. The last phase of the solar water heater grant programme ended in November 2012. According to the Malta Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energies Association (M.E.E.R.E.A.), the funding for next year`s subsidy scheme was part of the state budget draft for 2013. This draft, however, has not met the parliament’s approval. As a result, the government will be suspended by 7 January 2013 and general elections will be held on 9 March 2013. According to the Malta Today newspaper, the opposition leader has announced that if he wins the general election, he will retain the 2013 budget and focus on the 2014 budget instead.
