Other criteria

- An EEEF investment is generally not possible, if the project receives subsidies from other EU programs (Structural Funds, Cohesion Funds etc.).
- A complementary financing between eeef and above mentioned EU programs is possible if the project can be divided in separate project phases, thereby eeef and other EU programs financing different phases. The principle of ‘which EUR buys what’ is being applied here.
- Investments in the transport sector will also target a 20% reduction of CO2 emissions. A calculation of actual CO2 savings and of primary energy savings needs to be provided.
