Energy package 1: Gas subsidy to all households using gas (from 23% to 5%)

Last updated: 2 December 2022

Mitigation of the rise in gas prices

Reduce VAT on gas to 5%. The amount of support directly on the bill is 10 Lipa per kWh, which is about 20% of the projected price of EUR 66 per MWh, and the discount is shown on the bill as a separate item. The suppliers send the request for compensation for the discount to the Ministry of Economy, which settles it every month from April 2022 to March 2023.

Support for entrepreneurs
Support for SMEs with an average annual consumption of up to 10 GWh. The amount of support is 15 Lipa per kWh, that is, 22% of the projected price of EUR 89 per MWh, and is realized with a voucher for the amount of support of a small value. Each month, the subsidized amount is deducted from the voucher until it is used up or by the end of March 2023.
