In order to provide as accurate and useful information as possible, Finland concentrates its reporting efforts on the most essential and concrete policies and measures. Although this PAM serves / has served an important purpose, it is not considered one of them. Therefore the status of this PAM has been marked as “unknown”. However, this PAM may still be in force and bring significant emissions reductions.
A subsidy scheme entailing support for up to 20% of costs when a residential building introduces a ground source heat and air-to-water heat pump as its main heating system, or shifts to pellet heating and other wood-based fuels, was introduced from 1 January 2011. The intention was to grant support for renovations of houses with electric or oil heating, but not new buildings or old houses using district heating. For the non-residential building stock, grants are provided for energy audits only. The support is not granted during the years 2013 - 2015 due to the minimised state budget allocation.
