  8. 8. Solar Thermal support schemes Subsidy: AT, BE, CZ, EE, FI, FR, DE, EL, IE, LU, MT, PL, RO, SK, SL, GB Tax exemptions: BE, CZ, DK, FR, EL, IE, IT, NL, SE 8 Price-based: GB, IT, LT Loans: BE, BG, FR, DE, EL, IT, NL, SL, GB
  9. 9. Spain: GIT (Grandes Instalaciones Térmicas) The maximum funding per project is 80% of the value of the eligible investment (the intended thermal generation), with an absolute minimum of 250,000 and maximum of € 3,000,000 € per project (5 ml for ESCOs) UK: Non-Domestic RHI (1 GWth but 93% biomass, 3.2% Solar Thermal..) Solar Process Heat support schemes 9 UK: Non-Domestic RHI (1 GWth but 93% biomass, 3.2% Solar Thermal..) provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat. For the non-domestic sector it provides a subsidy based on the heat output of the system, payable for 20 years, to eligible, non-domestic renewable heat generators. Netherlands: Energy Investment Allowance 41.5% of tax deduction of eligible investment costs
  10. 10. Germany: - Market Rebate Programme: process heat subsidy: 140 EUR/m2 gross collector area. Incentives for innovative designs. Performance based incentive requires Solar Keymark. - Market Incentive programme: investment grants for heat provision <100m2 - KfW-Programme: Renewable Energies – Premium: enterprises can gain investment grant or an interest subsidy for large scale technical plants with demonstration character. France: - Fonds Chaleur: ADEME supports RES heat production projects in production companies. It covers solar thermal plants for hot water production and 350kWh minimum per m2. 10 Rue d'Arlon 63-67 • B-1040 Bruxelles • Belgium • Email: info@estif.org • Web: www.estif.org covers solar thermal plants for hot water production and 350kWh minimum per m2. - Project call "Grandes installations solaires thermiques" >300m2, subsidy range 45% to 65% Austria: - Environmental Assistance Programme (UFI): installations >100m2, environment-related investment costs minimum € 10,000 + minimum of 4 t CO2 savings - Kommunalkredit for Klima+Energie Fonds subsidises the realisation of large solar thermal plants, funding is between 40 to 50% of total costs for solar thermal plants between 100 m² and 2,000 m²
  11. 11. Solar Thermal support schemes in Italy Subsidy: Conto termico <1000m2 Tax exemption: 65% of investment for max. 60.000 EUR over ten years 11 over ten years Loans: Fondo Kyoto
  12. 12. Regional support schemes: Wallonia case Aide à l'investissement (support scheme + tax rebate) Premium to the investment with exemption from property tax, for SMEs and larger firms carrying out an investment program contributing to sustainable development. 12 sustainable development. Eligible investment costs at least € 25,000 SMEs: max 50 % of the investments costs - total amount of the subsidy cannot exceed € 1.5 million over 4 years Large companies: max 20 % of the investments costs
  13. 13. Regional support schemes: Extremadura case Grants to finance tourism and agro industrial companies in the area of Extremadura - SMEs in agro industrial and tourism sectors can apply 13 - SMEs in agro industrial and tourism sectors can apply - The subsidy consists of a grant of 5% of interest calculated on the first two years under the terms of a loan arranged. - Minimum eligible investment 10.000 EUR, max 100.000 - Maximum repayment term of 10 years - Low temperature
  14. 14. Main weaknesses: - Bureaucratic procedures (Conto Termico) - Bad designs (Fondo Kyoto) or implementation - Delays in implementation (RHI), stop-and-go policies (Italian tax rebate) - Unclear targets. Few support schemes focused on SHIP, most target all RES-H&C, or all industrial process heat. 14 target all RES-H&C, or all industrial process heat. - Small scale installations prevail when in same scheme - SHIP suffers from competition of other RES (ex. biomass in RHI) - Information is lacking - Governments prefer instruments delaying payments (tax exemptions) not tools supporting up-front investment cost
  15. 15. Demonstration Deployment EU level National level 15 - Different typologies of support schemes needed for different market phases (demonstration vs deployment) - Different typologies of support schemes come from different governance levels
  16. 16. Key success factors for support schemes - Continuity, predictability and stability - Contribution of different stakeholders - Quality and performance assurance 16 - Monitoring and evaluation transparency - Clear targets - Adequate financial resources

  21. 21. Future challenges: - EU legislation review - 2030 framework - Electrification and other RES competition 21 - Electrification and other RES competition - Changing nature of support schemes - Going from demonstration to deployment
  22. 22. Aggregate Disseminate – Establish trust – Inform about existing options What can we do? 22 Aggregate – Reach critical mass – Exploit success stories/sectors Lobby – Improve legislation – Access funds, projects
