2023 Energy affordability support package for businesses
The Portuguese government implemented a new round of measures to limit the impact of the global energy crisis on domestic businesses in 2023. These include :
- Extraordinary regulations and compensation measures to limit electricity prices rise; and
- Extraordinary subsidies to industrial companies, meant to limit natural gas price increase. The support is to be managed by the regulating entity ERSE, and will be distributed based on 80% of each company's average consumption in recent years.
