Aid for energy-intensive sectors due to prices of natural gas and electricity


​by Magdalena Skurowska

30 October 2023

Another round of aid for energy-intensive enterprises was announced on 25 October 2023, with a call for applications lasting from 25 October to 8 November 2023.
The scheme's budget is 5.5 billion zloty.
The scheme is designed to provide financial support to energy-intensive businesses which incur additional costs due to high electricity and natural gas prices in 2023.
The aid will be available to energy-intensive enterprises from the mining and industrial processing sectors. The aid will be provided in either a basic or extended variant. 
All energy-intensive enterprises that operate predominantly in sections B or C of the Polish Classification of Activities (PKD) will be eligible for the basic aid. Energy-intensive enterprises are companies whose electricity and natural gas bills in 2021 accounted for no less than 3% of the value of production sold. 
The basic aid can be up to 50% of eligible costs, but not more than 4 million euro calculated jointly for all associated enterprises.
Extended aid will, in turn, be available to businesses that meet all of the following additional conditions:
  • operate predominantly in industries identified by the EC as particularly exposed to losing competitive edge (defined by PKD subclasses or PRODCOM codes);
  • show a negative EBITDA in 2023 or EBITDA that is lower by at least 40% compared to 2021;
  • submit an energy efficiency improvement plan by the end of the first quarter of 2024, the implementation costs of which amount to at least 30% of the aid.
The extended aid is 80% of the eligible costs up to 40 million euro, calculated in total for all associated enterprises.
The call for applications is open until 8 November 2023.
