Energy Efficient Technologies

About this programme

The Energy Efficiency Fund (E2F) aims to help manufacturing SMEs improve energy efficiency by adopting energy efficient equipment or technologies.

E2F co-funds up to 70% of the qualifying costs, which include external manpower, equipment or technology and professional services.
