Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 2, 2013

Parallel to the residential subsidy scheme, the Croatian Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund (EPEEF) has been offering financial support to private and public entities since December 2012. The interest-free loans cover up to 40% of the total investment in the renewable system, up to a maximum amount of Croatian Kuna (HRK) 1.4 million (approx. EUR 185,000) and a maximum repayment period of seven years. Eligible technologies include solar thermal, off-grid photovoltaics and heat pumps. The programme allows only two projects per company.
