In Malta, electricity generated by PV installations is supported through a feed-in tariff and an investment grant scheme. Malta promotes solar water heating systems for domestic use through a subsidy scheme. Electricity generated by renewable energy plants must be given priority transmission. According to the regulations in place, new grid capacity will be offered through a tendering procedure where required.

Support for renewable energy sources (RES) used in the transport sector is provided through a substitution obligation on importers and wholesalers of fossil fuels. Moreover, a subsidy on Electric Vehicles is provided since January 2017.

In addition, a training programme for the certification of Renewable Energy Systems installers, providers of energy services, energy auditors and energy managers as well as a Certification Programme for RES installations are in place.
