Support program: Energy efficiency in companies

State funding from the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control

What can be promoted?

Funding is provided for new acquisitions or energy optimization of industrial and commercial facilities and processes.
The technology-neutral funding is intended to help increase energy efficiency and reduce overall energy consumption in companies.
New purchases will only be funded if they, such as. VALCO systems, highly efficient are.

Who is funded and with how much?

Up to 40 of the costs for small and medium-sized enterprises with up to 250 employees and annual sales not exceeding €50 million.
Up to 30 of the costs for companies with more than 500 employees.

Optimization or new acquisition of technical systems:

The maximum subsidy is 10 million €.
The prerequisite in each case is a company-specific concept by an approved energy consultant.
Also the cost of a Energy consultant can be promoted in the total investment.
When commissioned through us, the costs will only be invoiced AFTER the notice of approval has been issued.

Promotion for exhaust systems

How and where to apply?

Eligible measures are only those with which prior to application has not yet been started.
Information can be obtained from the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) under the following Link be obtained:

Promotion of cross-sectional technologies by the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control


Detection method

The verification of the technical efficiency criteria of the installed products is usually carried out by means of manufacturer’s certificates and product data sheets as well as, if necessary, technical test reports by experts.
Proof of the efficiency criteria must be attached to the proof of use.

Funding Objective:


Electric motors and drives


Ventilation and air-conditioning systems


Plants for heat recovery and waste heat utilization

according to the regulations:

ERP 2009/125/EC – Eco-design of energy-related products
Implementing regulation engines 640/2009- 327/2011 – environmental design of powered engines.

What can be subsidized for dust collection systems?

  • Replacement of old filter systems or exhaust fans with new filter systems, which instead of exhaust air, are now usedin recirculation mode :
  • Heating energy saving
  • Retrofitting of filter systems with negative pressure control via a frequency converter.
  • Retrofitting of filter systems with an automatic start/stop system
  • Saving electrical energy by controlling power according to demand. This also additionally leads to an extension of the filter service life and reduced component wear.
