This Grant Scheme seeks to support investments to address high upfront costs of building renovations in the private sector, namely commercial buildings. Actions that reduce the primary energy demand of the building by reducing the energy used for heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water and lighting are eligible. This includes actions involving systems for the above energy use as well as interventions on the building envelope that reduce the energy demand required by the above.
This scheme is funded through the Recovery and Resilience Plan and this particular scheme will part-finance eligible costs [up to a maximum of €350 per m2 (capped at €1,000,000 per Undertaking)]. Aid intensities will vary with the base rates being between 30% and 50% and incremental intensities being added or deducted depending on size of Undertaking, project locations and the specifications of the project (as outlined in the Guidance Notes).
