Eligible Project Types and Examples of Eligible Expenses

  • Low-carbon processes and technologies
    • Replacement of equipment that uses fossil fuels with electric equipment.
    • Adaptation or acquisition of equipment for the incorporation of alternative or renewable raw materials into the production process to reduce consumption and/or emissions (by-products, recycled materials, biomaterials).
    • Investment in digital solutions through intelligent solutions to support measurement, monitoring, data processing for the management and optimization of processes, consumption and reduction of GHG and pollutant emissions, increasing the efficiency of resource use (raw materials, water, energy) and promoting their circularity.
  • Energy efficiency measures
    • Optimization of motors, turbines, pumping systems and ventilation systems (for example, installation of variable speed drives and replacement of equipment with high energy performance equipment).
    • Optimization of compressed air systems (e.g., replacement of the air compressor, reduction of pressure and temperature, variable speed drives).
    • Replacement and/or modification of furnaces, boilers and injectors.
    • Heat or cold recovery.
    • Utilization of residual heat from nearby industries (in industrial symbiosis).
    • Optimization of industrial cold production (for example, replacement of chiller or heat pump).
    • Replacement of lighting systems with more energy-efficient systems or solutions.
  • Incorporation of renewable energy and energy storage
    • Installation of electricity generation systems from renewable energy sources for self-consumption.
    • Installation of equipment to produce heat and/or cold from renewable sources (including heat pumps).
    • Adaptation of equipment for the use of renewable fuels (including those from waste and renewable gases such as green hydrogen).
    • Installation of highly efficient cogeneration systems based exclusively on renewable energy sources.
    • Energy storage systems.
