Energy Efficiency in Buildings
Eligible Expenditures related to Energy Efficiency in Buildings are the Fund’s expenditures and Flanders’ expenditures dedicated to energy loans at adjusted interest rates.
An energy loan can be used to carry out energy refurbishment in existing housing and energy-efficient techniques in newly built houses. Everybody can gain from the renovation loan but vulnerable low-income households have priority.
In the Design of the Flemish Energy Plan for the period 2021-2030 is the setting up of a so-called rolling fund discussed. The aim of this fund is to help targeted populations with the energy refurbishment of houses in poor condition. By making houses more energy-efficient, and thus also reducing consumption and improving the quality of life, the fund also combats energy poverty.
