The European Commission has approved a scheme which intends to give support to energy conservation and the use of renewable energy in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

Support under the scheme is given to cover costs for renewable energies (hydroelectric, wind, thermal and solar energy, photovoltaic installations, geothermal energy and district heating power stations). The whole scheme (for 1995 and 1996) has a total budget of DM 9.5 million (ECU 4.75 million) each year.

Support for eligible projects will be given in the form of grants covering project costs. These include personal costs, travelling expenses and other direct costs to the project. Other costs (indirect costs) are covered at a 80% rate of the personal costs. The aid intensity differs according to the subprogrammes, but may not exceed 40%.
