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. The possibilities are many and varied. A closer look at the measures we support as part of "Innsbruck fördert: EnergiePlus" program pays off.

The promotion of photovoltaic systems , which is limited until 31.12.2023, has been permanently included in the catalog of measures. Of the total output of the photovoltaic system, a maximum of 10 kWp is subsidized with 250.00 euros per kWp (max. 2,500.00 euros per metering point number).

If insulation is used with renewable raw materials (e.g. cellulose, cork, hemp, new wool), at least 50% of the required insulation thickness must be based on renewable raw materials.

In addition, from January 1, 2024, the previously mandatory energy consultation is no longer necessary.

Funding is provided exclusively in the form of one-off grants and is granted in addition to federal and state funding. However, the total of all subsidies (federal, state and city) may not exceed the total costs of the investment. Should the subsidies nevertheless exceed the investment costs, the amount of the municipal subsidy will be reduced proportionately.

Specifically, funding is available:

  • Individual measures to improve thermal insulation, such as insulation of the exterior walls, the top floor ceiling or the roof slope, the basement ceiling and the replacement of windows and front doors
  • Increased funding 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
  • Detailed energy consultations
  • Solar thermal systems (new build and existing properties)
  • Installation of electrically powered heat pumps (new builds and existing properties)
  • District heating connection (new build and existing properties)
  • Photovoltaic systems

How much funding is available?

How much funding you receive depends on the measures. You can find more information in the funding guidelines and implementation regulations.

What requirements must I fulfill?

  • In principle, you must receive the residential building renovation grant as part of the Tyrolean housing subsidy.
  • The technical requirements (see building-related requirements) must be met.
  • The property to be subsidized must be occupied as a main residence.
  • All necessary official permits must be available. Please note that, for example, there are design requirements for renovation measures (e.g. window replacement, facade painting, roofing) in a protection zone in accordance with the SOG. You will need a permit for this in accordance with the SOG. You can also apply for funding in accordance with the SOG for the additional costs incurred as a result.
  • You can find the technical requirements of the building services systems in the GET product database. Only systems that are listed there are eligible for funding.
