General information- aims of the scheme Motives- Benefits In order to increase the motives and maximize the benefits of the country we utilize the features that gives the recent amendments of the EU Regulation about the Structural Fund, which was entered into force on 24 June 2010, and we proceed to set up a holding fund to finance energy-saving interventions in the home- building sector. Specifically, the scheme will be funded through through a specific fund portfolio titled “Home energy savings”. During the creation of the fund, a budget increase was secured, which now stands at 396 million Euros against the 200 million Euro that were estimated at the beginning. In practice the fund that is funded by NSRF resources, contribute to the loan finance of the banks and provide liquidity to the market at reduced interest rates. As a result, through the Fund are obtained: • •

The combination of grants with low-interest or no interest loans for the lower and medium income respectively and the provision of soft loans to the higher incomes

Additional funds through the reuse of the capital regarding the loans, provides more incentives , as the revolving funds will be available for energy saving in the residential sector on a regular bases through new round of proclamations. For the first round (2010-2012) is expected to be achieved a total investment of 1 billion Euro. Significant benefit for the country is the fact that through the fund is achieved a direct inflow and an increased absorption of the NSRF funds for the 2010.
