The Hungarian Ministry of National Development calls for tenders to install solar energy systems in buildings managed by residential public institutions as of 5 August 2013. The support may cover up to 100 percent of eligible historical costs. Financed from quota revenues, the total tender amount is HUF 867.2 million.

Tender support will be awarded to specialised social care institutions and residential child protection institutions maintained by the General Directorate for Social Care and Child Protection and under the professional supervision of the Ministry of Human Resources.

The obtained tender funds may be used to purchase solar energy collectors and accessories as well as to modernise certain parts of the related building mechanics systems. The non-refundable post-financing support may cover up to 100 percent of eligible historical costs. The upper eligibility limit is HUF 342,900 per capita, to be calculated on the basis of the maximum authorised number of persons in care in the residential institution concerned.

The eligible investments must reduce carbon-dioxide emission and improve energy efficiency. In addition, the solar energy collector systems to be installed must be organically suited to the existing building mechanics systems and be operative throughout the year.

Institutions may submit their applications to the address of National Environmental Protection and Energy Center Non-Profit Ltd. from 5 September 2013 until the tender budget is exhausted.

This is a new version of an earlier tender for households to install solar energy systems, launched by the Ministry of National Development in October 2011 within the New Széchenyi Plan Green Investment System, this time made available for institutions. The previous tender used a total budget of HUF 2.97 billion and reduced energy costs in approximately 4,200 homes.
