Programme SummaryWhy is the programme needed? One of the target indicators under the Europe 2020 strategy is to have 20% of energy coming from renewables. Slovakia currently has around 10% and several initiatives will be needed to increase this share in the forthcoming years. When it comes to natural resources, Slovakia has a lot of unused potential in the field of biomass, and the programme will try and better realise this potential. What will the programme achieve? When implemented, the programme will have provided a good foundation for better exploiting the biomass potential in Slovakia, helping to increase the country’s share of renewable energy. At the national level the biomass market in Slovakia is not much developed and the programme will try to create a better functioning biomass market throughout the whole of Slovakia. The programme will be supporting the whole value chain for energy generation of biomass, thereby contributing to economic development in a sustainable way. How will it be achieved?
- €16 million will be made available through one open call planned for the first quarter of 2013, with a project support in the range of €1 million to €5 million.
- 5-6 projects evenly distributed across Slovakia will be supported. A typical project would include the implementation of innovative processes and new technology within the following components:
- Involvement of research institutions will be encouraged as part of the open call to further ensure innovation and increased use of modern technologies.
