Many optimization measures can be implemented with relatively little financial effort. Especially for enterprises that have already exhausted these low investment possibilities to a large extent or in cases for which more effort is needed to achieve efficiency potential, larger investments are required.
To minimize related costs, especially in the field of energy and material efficiency, but also in other segments of the resource efficiency, there are subsidy programs. The most common subsidies are in the form of investment grants and low-interest loans. Depending on who extends the subsidy and who receives it, they can vary in amount, duration and other conditions that are required for the successful allocation of the subsidy.
As the conditions for receiving subsidies are often changed at a very fast pace, and subsidies are even created for specific projects, it is critical for companies to always be up to date with this regard. Since time is a limited resource, it is recommended to seek the support of external experts.
