What is subsidized?

The city of Innsbruck promotes measures in residential buildings to increase thermal and sound insulation as well as environmentally friendly measures to reduce energy consumption and pollutant emissions.

As of 01.01.2021, the municipal subsidy "EnergiePlus" was adapted to the new Tyrolean housing subsidy. Some criteria such as the thermal insulation values (U-values) were tightened. In addition, the connection to a district heating pipeline was included in the catalog of measures.

As of 01.09.2022, the installation of a photovoltaic system with a system output of at least 6 kilowatt peak will now also be subsidized by the city of Innsbruck. All those who have already applied for federal or state subsidies this year can submit the subsidy application to the City of Innsbruck.

Subsidies consist exclusively of one-time grants and are awarded in addition to federal and state subsidies.

Specifically, the following are subsidized:

  • Individual measures to improve thermal insulation, such as insulation measures for exterior walls, the top floor ceiling or the pitch of the roof, the basement ceiling, and the replacement of windows and front doors
  • Increased subsidies for renovation measures with insulation based on renewable raw materials
  • Installation of soundproof windows
  • Installation of sound-insulating ventilators
  • Passive measures to prevent overheating in summer
  • Comfort ventilation systems and individual ventilators, each with heat recovery
  • Thermal solar systems (new and existing buildings)
  • Installation of electrically driven heat pumps (new and existing buildings)
  • District heating connection (new and existing buildings)
  • Photovoltaic systems
