In 2009, a system was introduced for funding projects for heat production from renewables through energy service companies (ESCOs), with two specific aims: on the one hand to promote the development of this type of company and on the other hand to increase the use of biomass, geothermal and solar energy, guaranteeing the quality of plants and offering products designed for the needs of hot water and air conditioning users in buildings.
These programmes (BIOMCASA, GEOCASA, SOLCASA) have certain limitations with regard to the amount per project and are supplemented by the Major Thermal Installation (GIT) programme which applies to projects with a major volume of investment.
These programmes establish certain technical guarantees when implementing the plants, provide a supply commitment in terms of energy quantity and cost savings to the end-user and deliver promotional information campaigns to sectors involved in developing the project as well as to users.
As the biomass programme funds were used up, the BIOMCASA II programme was launched with the aim of continuing to facilitate the promotion and funding of thermal biomass projects in buildings.
Data available on December 31, 2015, related to the financing already allocated to projects was as follows:
