Hungary's government will call a tender in the summer offering more than HUF 100 billion in grants to support the installation of home solar panels and energy-efficient electric heating systems, according to a report by napi.hu.

The plans were announced by Attila Steiner, Minister of State responsible for developing the circular economy and for energy and climate policy, at a conference organized by the Hungarian Solar Panel Association (MNNSZ).

The grants, from the EUR 16 bln-17 bln Hungary expects to draw down from the European Union's EUR 750 bln recovery fund, will support complex energy solutions in around 80,000 homes, Steiner said.

He reiterated the government's goal to triple the country's solar panel capacity to 6GW by 2030.
