The programme, which was launched on 1 January 2016, is to supplement and add strength to the funding programmes that already exist (CO2 Building Modernisation Programme and Market Incentive Programme). Double-funding is not permissible.
The funding (grants) focuses on four priorities:
- the installation of ventilation systems (ventilation package) in conjunction with measures to renovate the building envelope which are designed to prevent damage to the building (for instance, mould),
- the replacement of inefficient heating systems with efficient ones (heating package); this includes measures to optimise the heating system (heating and heat distribution) which address the entire efficiency potential of the heating system,
- the launch of the innovative fuel cell heating systems onto the market
