The “Household Energy Efficiency II” Program was designed in continuation of the “Household Energy Efficiency” program of the programming period 2007-2013, which resulted in the energy upgrade of more than sixty thousand households.

The design of the Program takes into account the integrated energy efficiency intervention in the residential building sector and has as a main objective

  • the reduction of the energy needs of the buildings

  • of the emissions that contribute to the aggravation of the greenhouse effect

  • a cleaner environment.

The Program provides incentives for interventions that aim for energy saving in the residential building sector. It concerns buildings which have a planning permission or another legalizing document, are used as a main residence and their owners meet specific income criteria. More specifically, the program includes seven (7) incentive categories in which the beneficiaries are classified according to their taxable income as determined in their last income statement from the submission of the application to participate in the program..

The program is funded by the EPC and national resources, and provides incentives in the form of a grant (direct aid) and a loan (“Household Energy Efficiency II” Fund) with interest rate subsidy.

Under collective terms, the renovation of the building stock for the purposes of achieving high energy efficiency leads to direct benefits:

  • energy saving

  • reduction of carbon dioxide emissions

  • upgrade of the urban environment

  • upgrade of the living conditions in the buildings and cities and improvement of the citizens’ everyday life

  • additional benefits in other financial and social sectors too, including energy security, tackling of energy poverty, occupation and health.
