The national energy efficiency fund (FNEE) supports energy efficiency measures carried out by businesses, including Energy Service Companies (ESCos), and by the public administration, on buildings, plants and production processes.

Specifically, the interventions supported must concern:

  • the reduction of energy consumption in industrial processes,
  • the construction and expansion of district heating networks,
  • the efficiency of public services and infrastructures, including public lighting;
  • the energy requalification of buildings.
