For 2022 (13th edition of the programme), applications for subsidies ran from 8th November 2021 to 16th October 2022.
Examples of recipients for the 2022 support scheme includes a national support programme for the energy improvement of lighting. This programme aims to guarantee the quality of planning and the efficient implementation of lighting and control systems. 

For 2023, applications are opened since 7 November 2022 and will run until November 2023. As part of the 2023 edition, a separate bidding round will be organised for the first time for projects with an incentive contribution between CHF 2 million and 6 million.
