Energy cost subsidy for companies is coming

Energiekostenzuschuss Beleuchtung

Energy-intensive* companies with a permanent establishment in Austria will be supported to cushion the increase in energy costs. This is to be achieved with a new subsidy amounting to 30% of the additional costs for electricity, natural gas and partly also fuels in the period from 1 February to 30 September 2022.

The grant funding was launched by the Austrian Federal Government together with the Austria Wirtschaftsservice (aws).
Pre-registration for the energy cost subsidy is possible with the aws subsidy manager** for companies up to and including 28 November 2022.
Pre-registration is mandatory for subsequent applications for the energy cost subsidy. There is an exception for the flat-rate subsidy.

The application itself is possible from 29 November 2022 to 15 February 2023.

Visit the aws website for all the latest information on the funding manager and the energy cost subsidy:

* Energy-intensive companies are those whose annual energy costs amount to at least three percent of the production value.
** Please see the following link for information on the aws funding manager.
