ENEO – The Berlin funding scheme for energy advice and energy surveys
With the ENEO funding scheme (Energy Advice for Efficiency and Optimisation), owners of properties in the capital receive help with renovating buildings to make them more energy efficient.
The project subsidises energy surveys and helps building owners to implement energy efficiency measures by providing professional energy advice.
What does ENEO cover?
The ENEO funding scheme is based on three pillars:
- Energy advice provided by qualified experts
- Subsidies for conducting an energy survey
- Individual, free support in the run-up to the renovation
Free advice from the ENEO team
Anybody undertaking energy-related renovations or modernisations to residential properties must answer a lot of questions before they begin. What renovations will create the greatest savings? What is structurally feasible? What is the most effective way of using the available budget?
The ENEO team can help you clarify these issues. You will get comprehensive, expert information on renovating buildings for energy efficiency and how the funding process works. This also includes recommendations on how to implement the measures from the energy survey in practice, such as:
- Cost-effectiveness analyses;
- Possible funding; and
- Financing scenarios.
This support is free.
Who is eligible for funding for energy surveys?
The ENEO funding scheme helps owners of residential properties in Berlin renovate buildings to make them more energy efficient. It also covers residential buildings used privately, and rental buildings.
Examples of eligible parties include:
- Private landlords;
- Housing cooperatives;
- Property owners' associations;
- Property companies; and
- Private investors.
Are you a Berlin company looking to make your commercial buildings more energy-efficient? Then take advantage of the free advice available from the "Koordinierungsstelle für Energieeffizienz und Klimaschutz im Betrieb (KEK)" and chat to experts.
How much of the costs for conducting an energy survey are subsidised?
With the ENEO funding scheme, applicants receive a subsidy to cover the costs of preparing an energy survey. The amount of this subsidy depends on the number of residential units in the building in question and is broken down as follows:
No. of residential units
Subsidy per survey
1 - 2
3 - 10
11 - 30
31 - 50
51 – 100
The subsidy is paid out in two instalments and only to the amount of the actual costs, taking into account any other funding that has been received.
