Description:

The energy-efficient housing programme offers grants of PLN 50,000 (EUR 12 500) to people who build new or renovate their old homes and whose retrofitted houses use no more than 15 kWh/m² annually from external sources of heating and electricity. Homes which use no more than 40 kWh/m² annually will receive PLN 30,000 (EUR 7,500).

The programme is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2013 and is supposed to run until the end of 2018.

The program is targeted to individuals building a single-family house or buying house/apartment from the developer (including as a housing association).

The support will take the form of a partial repayment of the bank loan capital to build/buy a home or buy a home. The grant will be paid to the credit account of the beneficiary at the end of the project and obtain the required confirmation by the building energy standard.

The amount of funding will depend on the achieved rate of annual individual utility energy demand for heating and ventilation, calculated according to the guidelines of the National Fund, and the fulfilment of other conditions, including the efficiency of the heating system and water treatment systems.

According to NFOŚiGW, a budget of Polish Zloty (PLN) 300 million (around EUR 75 million) will support at least 12,000 energy homes and flats over a period of five years.
