Eligible expenditures within Energy Efficiency in Buildings are emergency purchase fund expenditures and energy loans expenditures.
The emergency purchase fund helps targeted populations with the energy refurbishment of houses in poor condition. By making houses more energy-efficient, and thus also reducing energy consumption, this fund combats energy poverty and aims to improve the quality of life.
An energy loan can be used to either carry out energy refurbishment in existing housing or energy-efficient techniques in newly built houses. Until 2018, anyone could benefit from these renovation loans. Since 2019, only non-commercial legal entities, cooperatieve companies (until the end of 2019) and vulnerable low-income households can apply for this renovation loan.
