Water treatment will remain eligible in 2023

In order to achieve an even stronger climate protection effect and to further reduce dependence on Russian gas and oil, the BEG individual measures were adjusted as of January 1st, 2023. This is the third change within a year since the funding program was launched. The most important thing in terms of water treatment: This will continue to be eligible for subsidies of up to 40 percent in the future.

The Federal Funding for Efficient Buildings (BEG) combines previous funding programs to promote energy efficiency and renewable energies in the building sector. Among other things, it supports the use of new heating systems, the optimization of existing heating systems, measures on the building envelope and the use of optimized system technology.

Almost exactly two years ago, the BEG with the so-called individual measures (BEG EM) the former BAFA funding programs Heating with renewable energies and heating optimization replaced. Since July 1, 2021, there have also been the so-called systemic measures BEG WG and BEG NWG. A new adjustment was added on January 1st, 2023. Another novelty: the previous restrictions on owners, leaseholders and tenants have been lifted and the right to apply has been extended to all investors. In addition, there are two new regulations on the subject of energy saving, which came into force on September 1st, 2022 and October 1st, 2022.

BEG reform of the individual measures from January 1st, 2023 (BEG EM 2023):

As of January 1, 2023, the maximum subsidy for heat generation systems of 40 percent is only available when connecting to a heating network (30 percent + 10 percent heating exchange bonus) or when installing heat pumps (25 percent + 10 percent heating exchange bonus + 5 percent heat pump bonus). When optimizing the heating, it remains at a maximum of 20 percent. The loan promotion via the KfW, which was available as an option until July 27, 2022, is still canceled for the EM.

In addition, since August 15, 2022, gas has generally no longer been eligible for subsidies – but, like oil, is still permitted.

The funding for biomass will remain in place, but will be greatly reduced by a maximum of 20 percent. Since the middle of last year, the so-called iSFP bonus has only been available for the building shell, the system technology (except for the heating) and for heating optimization, which has now been reduced to a maximum of five residential units in existing buildings and to a maximum of 1,000 square meters in non-residential buildings.
