The Ministry of Economy has extended the eligible period for electricity and gas price compensations. In addition to 2023, it will also be possible to apply for compensation for the period up to 30 June 2024. Applications can be submitted until 15 June 2024.

The compensation amounts to 80 % of the difference between the price actually paid for gas and electricity and the set maximum limits of EUR 99 per MWh (gas) and EUR 199 per MWh (electricity) respectively. This is the net price of the commodity excluding distribution and network charges.

The maximum amount of the subsidy per month at the level of one economic unit is EUR 200.000. At the same time, the maximum cumulative amount of aid for all subsidies granted under Section 2.1 of the Temporary Crisis Framework per undertaking has been increased to EUR 2.250.000. If the amount requested exceeds EUR 100.000, the applicant must be entered in the Register of Public Sector Partners.

Eligible applicants are economic operators, i.e. those offering goods and/or services, irrespective of their legal status and method of financing, and irrespective of their size, i.e. small, medium-sized and large businesses, excluding credit and financial institutions. Businesses in difficulty are also eligible.
