But so far, EU funding to support energy savings for businesses has not been effective, the European Court of Auditors said in a report.

BERLIN (Reuters) -Germany's new Finance Minister Christian Lindner has called on fellow cabinet members to counter-finance any higher spending with budget cuts elsewhere in their departments, two people familiar with the government's 2022 draft budget said on Tuesday.

Lindner is party leader of the fiscally cautious Free Democrats (FDP), the smallest junior partner in Social Democrat Chancellor Olaf Scholz's three-party ruling coalition that also includes the environmentalist, pro-spending Greens.

The lithium-borates project near Loznica in the western Jadar valley is slated to position the Anglo-Australian miner as Europe's largest lithium supplier for at least next 15 years amid a boom in electric vehicle sales.
