Subsidies for energy vulnerable households

The reduction of bills for electricity, thermal energy and gas for the citizens of Serbia is partially subsidised through the EU support package for Serbia to overcome the energy crisis. The EU provides grants to Serbia in order to secure continuously lower energy prices for the most vulnerable families. As a result, in 2023, more than 190,000 households were able to realise the right to benefits, which is a three-fold increase on previous results.

In practice, protected households with two members, which now pay around 3770 Serbian dinars for electricity, will pay 1721 dinars less, which is a 50 percent monthly reduction for district heating. To benefit from this energy discount, citizens should apply to the local self-government where they live, which will then decide on their eligibility based on the Decree on energy vulnerable consumers.

Signing up in just a few steps!

  1. Download the application for acquiring the status of an energy vulnerable consumer (from the website of the Ministry, from the website of local self-government units or in person in the buildings of local self-government units)
  2. Fill out the request (the documentation necessary to achieve the status of an energy-vulnerable customer is listed in the Request)
  3. Submit the request to your local self-government!

You will receive a decision on your status within a month. Submitting a request does not involve any costs for citizens, and requests can be submitted throughout the year.
