According to Prime Minister Petr Fiala (ODS), large consumers of electricity and gas will be able to get help from November 1st due to higher energy prices. The program has 30 billion crowns available. He said after Wednesday’s government meeting. Jozef Síkela, Minister of Industry and Trade (STAN), said the application for the subsidy should be ready by 1 November.

According to Sikera, the program was created under the so-called Temporary Crisis Framework, which allows the states of the European Union to expedite entrepreneurs as a result of high energy prices and anti-Russian sanctions. Now we can help. For energy-intensive companies, the maximum support he can reach 200 million crowns, while others can receive up to 45 million crowns, Síkela further said.

According to Síkela, the support mainly concerns companies in the processing and mining industries, but also agriculture and forestry.
