Energy Efficiency Description:

Subsidies for Rational Use of Energy in public buildings, ranging from audits, setting up an energy management system, investment feasibility studies, to investments in building shell elements or systems. The subsidy ratio varies according to the type of publics building, and type of RUE action. Besides regular annual call for projects, there are some specific calls (in 2007, 2008 & 2013) with higher subsidy rates for specificly targeted type of public buildings (schools, e.g)

Renewable Energy Description:

Wallonia The Wallonia government will grant up to 30% for material investments and 50% for feasability studies and energy audits for public buildings. Wallonia aims to promote the rational use of energy - including building insulation and efficient heating - among renewable energy sources. Brussels Capital Region The Brussels Capital Region allocates subsidies to municipalities, local public bodies, schools and hospitals. Subsidies amount to 20% of the investment costs if they are considered to be of an energy efficient nature. Energy audits are subsidised up to 50% of the cost to a maximum.

Climate Change Description:

Wallonia The Wallonia government will grant up to 30% for material investments and 50% for feasability studies and energy audits for public buildings. The Walloon Regions MEBAR programme subsidizes low-income households to improve the energy efficiency of their dwellings. The Regions AGEBA funds go to municipal, provincial and regional buildings, and its ECHOP funds go to schools and hospitals. These latter two programmes were harmonised under a new scheme, called UREBA. The Region also provides a subsidy to municipalities for the replacement cost of inefficient public lighting (EP-URE programme). The subsidy covers some 70% or more, depending on the energy efficiency of the replacement. Wallonia aims to promote the rational use of energy - including building insulation and efficient heating - among renewable energy sources.

Subsidies amount to 20% of the investment costs if they are considered to be of an energy efficient nature. Energy audits are subsidised up to 50% of the cost to a maximum.
