No question: Using fossil fuels such as coal, gas or oil as a heat source in a private household does not have a future. The foreseeable end of availability of these energy suppliers is one of the reasons for this. Rising prices and increasing insecurity in the supply for political reasons are another. And after all, the use of these fuels is one of the main causes for the high CO2 pollution of our environment.
The funding guidelines on Federal Funding for Efficient Buildings (BEG) have finally been agreed. Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is starting from 2021 with a simplified range of financial incentives – the Federal Funding for Efficient Buildings (BEG). The BEG is replacing the programmes to promote energy efficiency and renewable energies in the building sector: the CO2 Building Rehabilitation Programme (Energy Efficient Construction and Refurbishment programmes), the Heating Optimisation Programme (HZO), the Energy Efficiency Incentive Programme (APEE), and the Market Incentive Programme for the Use of Renewable Energies in the Heating Market (MAP).
