Advice on €30 million to be made available for improving energy efficiency in Portuguese homes to come ‘any day now

Environment minister João Pedro Matos Fernandes has said the government will be launching advice on how citizens can benefit from €30 million being made available in the Programme for Recovery and Resilience to improve the energy efficiency of Portuguese homes. In total over €600 million will be going on promoting energy efficiency in buildings – half of this amount will go to residential buildings, and 10% of this for ‘house to house’ projects. In July, there will be a similar announcement focused on combat energetic poverty, he said. In this case, it won’t be a distribution of money, but ‘vouchers’ for people to be able to pay for similar projects.
