Assisted Investments (Standard Procedure)

Assisted investments include more complex or bespoke projects and those that require financing above the LEME limit of €250,000.

The following investments qualify for this procedure:

  • Replacement of complex equipment with new, more energy efficient machinery, which results in annual energy savings of at least 20%.
  • Building thermo-modernisation projects, which may involve renewable energy sources, and which results in annual energy savings of at least 30%.

Expert Support

The standard procedure on PolSEFFincludes assistance of qualified Energy Engineers and Financial Experts. These experts offer help in completing the required documentation and conduct the technical and financial evaluation of the project. The experts also conduct energy audits and verify that the investments qualify for financing.

If an energy audit is required to assess a project, it will be conducted free of charge within 6 weeks of the date of submission of all required documents.

Grant

After the project is completed and successfully verified by the Certified Energy Expert, the SME is entitled to receive one of the following grants:

  • 10% of the credit amount used to finance the eligible elements of the project; or
  • 15% of the credit amount used to finance the eligible elements of the project if it requires an energy audit.
