New aid for medium energy-consuming companies

In response to the current rise in energy prices, a new aid to cover the extra costs of natural gas and electricity has been made available.

It is aimed at medium energy-consuming companies, i.e. those whose energy costs represent at least 2 % of their turnover during the month for which the aid is requested.

Eligible costs are the monthly extra costs of natural gas and electricity incurred by the company that exceed 80 % of its average unit cost.

The application for aid must be submitted for each eligible month through an online assistant available on or on the mobile application, within the following deadlines:

  • by 31 March 2023 at the latest for the months of October, November and December 2022;
  • no later than 30 September 2023 for the months of January, February, March, April, May and June 2023.

The aid may not exceed a maximum of 70 % of the eligible costs and up to EUR 500,000 per group for the eligible period.
