Climate- and Energy Fund: 3.5 million Euro for exemplary refurbishments of company buildings and public buildings (13.02.2014)

The support programme "model refurbishments” sets a benchmark with 45 role model projects as a basis for new thermal refurbishments of buildings.

Refurbishment standards of today set the limits for emissions from buildings for the next 40 years. Within some decades the building sector should be totally free of emissions. So the support program of the Climate- and Energy Fund wants to enable this by establishing a refurbishment support program. This program is based on publishing role model examples of refurbishments, so that they can be easily copied by other people that want to invest in thermal refurbishment.

Contents of the support program:

The programme supports comprehensive refurbishment projects on operational level as well as on public buildings.

Possible combination:

- thermal refurbishment

- implementation of renewable energy (photovoltaic, solarthermal plants, CHP, etc.)

- energy efficiency measures

Subsidy height: max. 600.000€

- thermal-energetic building refurbishment:

Þ 45% of the relevant investment costs

Þ + additional fees of up to 60% in total

- measures on implementation of renewable energy and energy efficiency:

Þ 25 % of the relevant investment costs

Þ + additional fees of up to 35% in total

There is also an additional fee for Eco-Innovations:

by reaching "Passive House” standard (5%) or

the so called "klima:aktiv Gold Standard” (5%) or

reaching the "Plus Energy House” standard (10%)

and there is also an extra fee for the use of ecological insulation materials (5%).

Target groups for the subsidy programme:

all people with industrial activities

confessional institutions and associations


accommodations with more than 100 beds

public institutions and local authorities

With the support programme "model refurbishment” the Climate- and Energy Fund lies the main focus on high implementation of renewable energy, use of climate protecting materials and products within the refurbishment, measures on energy efficiency, no or very low level of cooling needs and a high level of innovation. For the whole support programme there is an amount of 10.9 million Euro available.
