Share this Post:
The Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS) has started a new subsidy programme for pilot buildings that fulfil the so-called 'energy surplus level'. For the year 2011 about 1.2 million Euros are available within the programme. The programme will support building owners who build houses that produce substantially more energy than necessary for their operation. The surplus energy shall be used in particular for electric mobility.
The BMVBS press release in German is available here.
