Slovakia: Call for EU funds for RES cancelled due to Recovery and Resilience Plan update

Earlier this week, the Slovakian Ministry of the Interior announced that it has cancelled a call for funding from the EU’s Recovery and Resilience Plan for Slovakia, part of the NextGenerationEU package. The funds were allocated for supporting the modernisation and transformation of existing facilities for the production of electricity from biogas stations (RES).

According to the Interior Ministry, the reason for the cancellation is due to the ongoing process of updating the country’s Recovery and Resilience Plan, which means that the allocated funds are currently unavailable.

Going forward, the Ministry informed applicants that in the coming days it plans to publish a call for the provision of funds for ‘the mechanism to support renewal and resilience’, aimed at supporting the modernisation of existing facilities for the production of electricity using biogas stations. Thus, the eligible projects will be aimed at the modernisation of existing biogas stations (‘type A’ projects according to the original call) with an unchanged allocation of 10 million euros.

However, the expected announcement of the call, which will also include support for projects aimed at the transformation of existing biogas stations into bio-methane stations (‘type B’ projects according to the original call), is contingent on the approval of the proposed update of the Plan and the related binding documents in relation to Investment 2 Component 1 of the Plan by the European Commission.
