Apply for a loan with a repayment subsidy for the new construction or purchase of energy-efficient non-residential buildings in the municipal and social infrastructure sector

Description

The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) promotes measures to increase energy efficiency.

You can receive a loan of up to EUR 25 million for the following measures:

  • New construction or purchase of energy-efficient non-residential buildings of municipal and social infrastructure that meet the requirements for a KfW efficiency building,
  • energy-efficient extension of non-residential buildings in the municipal and social infrastructure which do not yet fall within the scope of the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV) but which, following the extension, meet the requirements for a KfW Efficiency Building,
  • energy-efficient extension of non-residential buildings of municipal and social infrastructure by more than 50 square metres that meet the requirements for a KfW Efficiency Building.

The funding covers measures for the preparation, implementation and commissioning of the funded measure, such as ancillary work or planning costs.
No funding is available

  • for buildings with an oil-fired heating system,
  • for cash loans and debt rescheduling of projects that have already been completed and financed,
  • if you have already started with the measure before submitting the application.

There is a benchmark for energy-efficient buildings, the KfW efficiency building standard. The lower the number, the more efficient your building is and the less energy you need. The following standards are eligible for funding:

  • KfW Efficiency Building 55,
  • KfW efficiency building 70.

If you carry out your measure in accordance with the KfW Efficiency Building 55 standard, you can receive a repayment subsidy of 5 percent of the loan amount. You can receive a maximum repayment subsidy of EUR 50 for each square metre of renovated net floor area.

If you carry out your measure in accordance with the KfW Efficiency Building 70 standard, you will not receive a repayment grant.

You will only receive the repayment subsidy once you have completed your measure and provided KfW with proof that it has been carried out. To do this you must prove

  • that you have used the money for the measure applied for,
  • that you have achieved the KfW efficiency building standard.

You must keep all invoices and documents relating to the measure.

Applications for funding are processed by the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW).

You are not entitled to the grant.

Applications may be submitted by:

  • local authorities
  • legally dependent municipal undertakings of local authorities

      or
    • KfW efficiency building 70
  • You must plan your measure with an energy efficiency expert. This expert must meet the requirements of Section 21 of the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV).

  • Summary project description
