New regulations will apply to federal funding for efficient residential buildings (BEG WG) and non-residential buildings (BEG NWG) from January 1, 2023. At the time of going to press, the corresponding guidelines were still being coordinated by the departments. The following changes are planned for the funding of individual measures via BAFA for 2023: In the case of personal contribution, the material costs associated with the energy-related refurbishment measure should be subsidised. The connection to a heating network or to a building network should be promoted. Fuel cells that are operated with green hydrogen are to be promoted. For the promotion of heat pumps or biomass heating, at least 65 percent of the building must be heated with renewable energies. In the event of a heating defect, the rental costs for temporary heating devices can be subsidized for a period of up to one year in connection with the subsidy for heat generators. The funding for heating optimization has been limited to residential buildings with up to five apartments since September 2022. Biomass heating systems are only funded if they are combined with solar thermal energy and comply with strict emission limits for dust. The biomass used must also meet sustainability requirements. When promoting heat pumps, the minimum technical requirements are increased: arithmetically, at least an annual performance factor of 3 must be achieved. Strict noise emission limits apply to air-to-water heat pumps. In addition, the subsidy rates will be readjusted.
