(GermanPolicy.com) – Follow-up funding for energy-efficient new buildings by the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau is to apply from April 20th. The funding should be based on the EH40 standard, but with different funding rates and conditions. The Federal Government would like to use this to increase the momentum for the renovation of existing buildings – even if it is becoming apparent that the subsidy amount will soon be exhausted. A seal of quality should guarantee sustainability in construction. However, even more funding than in new buildings should flow into the renovation of buildings.
