    The European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Pomorskie Region in Poland are working together to improve urban areas and foster the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the region.

    Under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the EIB and the Board of Pomorskie Voivodship created a fund of funds for the programming period 2014-2020. The EIB manages €64 million on behalf of the region.

    This fund of funds is one of the financial instruments that the EIB is deploying in EU countries. Read more about our shared management funds and financial instruments.

    The financial instruments can support projects to improve energy efficiency, smart energy management and renewable energy use in the housing sector. Projects should result in increased energy efficiency of more than 25%.

    What is eligible

    • Thermal modernisation of multi-family residential buildings
    • Projects that reduce heat loss or eliminate individual heat sources in conjunction with connecting to district heating networks
    • Modernising local heat sources (except coal-fired sources if it does not involve a new fuel)
    • Energy upgrades including heating and ventilation systems, internal installations, use of renewable energy sources and the installation of energy monitoring and management systems

    To receive support, the final recipient must present an energy audit to justify the scope of the project and confirm that the project will achieve energy savings.

    Preference is given to comprehensive projects (in terms of the scope of work and the covered area) which use renewable energy sources, ensure improved energy efficiency by at least 60% (for single building projects) and the highest energy effect (such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions).

    Who can apply

    • Housing cooperatives
    • Condominiums
    • Social housing associations
    • Self-government entities and entities which they control (where municipal housing is concerned)
    • Energy service companies (ESCO)

    Our investments in renewable energy help to increase the level of energy production and energy security in the region.  Renewable energy also helps to reduce greenhouse gas and dust emissions, and contributes to climate change adaptation. Our support for the region’s green economy will also increase its competitiveness.

    What is eligible

    The financial instrument targets:

    • Renewable energy installations with reasonable environmental effects and cost effectiveness. Supported installations should increase the capacity of renewable energy sources.
    • Infrastructure to connect the source to the electrical grid, including micro-installations, which will generate electricity or heat.

    The financial instruments prioritise projects that fit in with municipal low-carbon or energy supply policies or innovative projects to develop equipment and systems with the highest environmental impact (such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions).

    Who can apply

    The financial instrument can provide support to investors and entrepreneurs who want to build a renewable energy installation in the Pomorskie region.

    Revitalisation of a late 19th century residential building in Gdansk

    As part of the revitalisation of the Lower Town in Gdańsk, the project promotors renovated and transformed a historic residential building into office spaces for creative enterprises.

    Thermal modernisation of a building in Słupsk

    The modernisation of this residential community building increased its energy efficiency by at least 32%. The project resulted in a reduction of energy consumption, decreasing energy costs and boosting the comfort of the community's residents.

    Solar panels for the maritime scouting centre in Puck

    The Polish Scouting Association installed solar panels on the roofs of its maritime centre. The generated electricity covers the energy consumption of the whole building. The investments resulted in an ecological, energy-saving and educational maritime centre.
