October 19 (SeeNews) - Bulgarian tourism businesses will be able to apply before end-2022 for 200 million levs ($100.4 million/102.3 million euro) in EU-backed grants for the development of renewable energy installations and battery storage systems for own use as well as for innovation and working capital, the caretaker government said.
Local tourism companies will also have access to guarantee instruments totalling over 290 million levs geared towards enhancing growth, energy efficiency and renewable energy, according to a joint statement by the ministries of innovation and tourism published earlier this week.

The funds will be made available under Bulgaria's National Recovery and Resilience Plan, worth about 6 billion euro ($5.8 billion) and approved by the European Commission in spring.
Companies from Bulgaria's tourism sector are also eligible to apply for close to 550 million levs for innovations and development under the Competitiveness and Enterprise Innovations operational programme for the 2021-2027 period. The programme received the Commission's green light earlier in October.
Tourism companies, including hotels, tour operators and resturants, are also eligible for working capital funding through unsecured loans of 225 million levs, made available through seven banks in partnership with the Fund of Funds and state-owned Bulgarian Development Bank.
