With InEECo, it is now possible for municipalities, counties and public administrators in Baden-Württemberg to carry out building retrofits at low costs with energy contracting. InEECo provides funding for the consulting services needed for energy contracting project development ― from the first consultation through completion of contract.
Up to 90 percent of the project cost can be funded through this program. The investment to funding ratio can reach a maximum of 1:20. This means that for every €20 of investment in a project, the InEECo program contributes €1 for the project development. For example, a project with an estimated total investment of €2.5 million will receive €125,000 for concept development.
The European Investment Bank supports up to 90 percent of all the planning and project development costs. Additionally, the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA) funding is also available.
The InEECo program is coordinated by the KEA Climate Protection and Energy Agency of Baden-Württemberg. This ensures an impartial and independent supervision of the energy saving projects ― from the initial consultation to the organization of contractual bidding and arrangement of the energy saving contract.
