The period for submitting projects to obtain financing to support investments in high-efficiency cogeneration (CHP) in the centralized district heating sector has been extended to September 15, 2022 at 5 p.m., the Minister of Energy, Virgil Popescu, announced on Facebook.

The initial deadline was of August 15, 2022, 5 p.m.

The total estimated budget of the scheme is the equivalent in lei of the sum of 388,050,000 euro (the equivalent in lei at the exchange rate of 4.9195 lei/euro), composed of 298,500,000 euro of European funds secured through the Recovery and Resilience Mechanism within the National Plan of Recovery and Resilience – Component C.6 Energy and national funds of 89,550,000 euro by applying the 30% overcontracting percentage, the release also states.

Fundable projects under the call must ensure the construction or modernization of high-efficiency cogeneration electricity and heat production units in the gas-fired, flexible and high-efficiency cogeneration central heating sector. Investments must replace at least the same capacity of power plants and/or thermal energy production plants with significantly higher carbon dioxide emissions (for example, based on coal, lignite or oil), thus leading to a decrease in GHG emissions.

Through the implementation of these projects, the aim is to increase the power installed in cogeneration in the centralized heating system by approximately 300 MW.
