Replacement program

The Ministry of National Development has published a tender for adult natural persons to increase the energy efficiency of Hungarian households.

The “Háztartási Nagygépek Cseréje Alprogram” (HGCS 2017) (Replacement of Large Household Appliances Subprogram), announced in 2017 under the “Otthon Melege Program” (Warmth of Home Program) aims to support the replacement of old energy-guzzler large household appliances (refrigerators, freezers, washing machines and washer-drying machines) in Hungary with highly energy-efficient, new appliances.

CECED Hungary has been supporting the replacement programs since the launch, as of 2014, as a professional partner of the Ministry of National Development and the tender manager NFSI.
