The European Commission said it has approved a EUR 20 million Slovenian scheme to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) affected by the energy crisis.
The Commission found that the Slovenian scheme is in line with the conditions set out in the Temporary Crisis and Transition Framework, the Commission said in a press release on Tuesday.
The aid will not exceed EUR 2 million per beneficiary and will be extended in the form of soft loans at below-market interest rates to SMEs affected by the energy crisis no later than December 31, 2023, the Commission added.
The scheme includes the possibility of additional interest rate reductions if SMEs carry out an energy audit.
