The State Fund for Environment has recently published HEAT Call No. 2 intended for large projects allocating CAD 294 million. The second subsidy call from the HEAT program is intended for heating plants (owners of heat supply systems) for the reconstruction or replacement of a heat source in heat supply systems. This call will support large projects with a support of over € 15 million. Priority will be given to reconstruction or replacement of a heat source in heat supply systems with a change of the fuel base or type of energy to: renewable energy sources in combination with high-efficiency cogeneration; energy recovery of waste (municipal waste, industrial waste, solid alternative fuel from municipal waste and from other category waste, sewage sludge) in combination with high-efficiency combined heat and power generation; electricity from renewable energy sources such as electric boilers; and waste heat energy in combination with high-efficiency cogeneration.
