Energy and Electricity Tax cap

Last updated: 9 April 2019
From 2013 on, tax relief is provided for the industry sector to implement energy efficiency measures. Measures include the implementation of energy management systems and achieving energy efficiency targets a requirement to benefit from the exemption.

In order to get a refund up to 90 % of the standard tax rate, the producing sector as a whole must decrease its energy intensity by 1.35 % p.a. compared to the average of 2007-2012.

Additionally, companies have to operate an energy management system, e.g. ISO 50001. This tax expenditure ensures international competitiveness of the producing sector.
