State gets extra funding for boiler replacement grants

04-06-2016

An extra CZK 300 million in state grants to replace old boilers will be available this year. The European Commission has agreed to fund the Ministry of the Environment scheme, making the move conditional on the money only going to renewable energy sources, meaning boilers using pure biomass or heat pumps. The Ministry is due to discuss the project with representatives of the Czech Republic’s regions in the coming weeks, a spokesperson said.
