  • Installation of Renewable Energy Source (RES) equipment
  • Supply of electric vehicles

This aspect of the program will be of particular interest to the engineering and construction industry.

The program subsidizes the costs borne by manufacturing companies for the supply of machinery and production equipment, alongside the modernization of the companies' infrastructure, with a view to enhancing competitiveness and innovation. The subsidy rate is up to 50% (depending on the aid intensity per region). Note that, according to gov.gr, the following submission period and deadline applies.
