Apply for funding for renewable heating and cooling supplies

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If you would like to implement and support projects in the field of renewable heating and cooling supply across all properties and want to establish energy-efficient, intelligent heating networks, in particular using solar thermal energy, geothermal energy and industrial waste heat, you can receive funding under certain conditions.

In order to achieve the climate targets, high investments in new heat supply systems are required, particularly for the conversion of the energy supply to greenhouse gas-neutral technologies, which are to be promoted with this directive.
In future, heat generation is to be based on renewable energies. Heat storage systems and intelligent heating networks can provide the necessary infrastructure for the transition to heat supply with renewable energies and facilitate the gradual switch to greenhouse gas-neutral energy sources.

This directive is intended to make a contribution to supporting and incentivizing these investments.

Requirements
  • The project must not have been started yet.
  • The project should make contributions in the areas of equality, non-discrimination and sustainable development.
  • The overall financing of the project must be secured.
  • The project must be carried out in Schleswig-Holstein.
  • The project must achieve CO2 savings compared to a conventional solution.
  • The project must contribute to the cross-cutting objectives of the European Regional Development Fund program.
  • Your project must be a network that supplies third parties (at least 10 connections).
  • In your project, the network must not exceed a maximum temperature level of 95° C.
  • In your project, the calculated heat losses for new networks and the actual heat losses of the existing network must not exceed 20 percent.
  • At least 75 percent of the heat sources used in the project (heating network) must consist of renewable energies or waste heat or a combination of both.
  • Both the network and the system can be funded separately or in combination.
  • A part of a network that can be precisely defined and is newly developed can also be considered a new network. This can be connected to an existing heating network.
  • The project must meet the above-mentioned general requirements for a heating network for the entire network. If only a definable sub-network is to be funded, the requirements must only be met by this sub-network.
