EERE Malta: Propelling the green transition

Fonicom is an ICT solutions company specialising in systems integration, data centre and software development. Thanks to the EERE Malta financial instrument powered by ERDF resources, Fonicom has successfully managed to reduce its energy consumption, thereby minimising its environmental footprint. The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy financial instrument (EERE) in Malta facilitated interest-free loans for the first ten years through a partnership between two local financial intermediaries and the European Investment Fund (EIF), mandated by the Maltese Managing Authority. EERE sought to enhance financing conditions for both enterprises and individuals by offering a capped guarantee combined with an interest rate subsidy, pushing loan interest rates for project promoters close to 0% for the initial ten years.
