Subsidies for heat pumps - new subsidy rates from 2021

The well-known promotional programmes of KfW and the Market Incentive Programme (MAP) of the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) will be merged. They will be replaced by the new promotional programme "Federal Promotion for Efficient Buildings (BEG)", which is divided into three sub-areas:

> Individual measures (refurbishment only)
> Efficiency houses for residential buildings (new construction and refurbishment)
> Efficiency houses non-residential buildings (new construction and refurbishment)

The area of individual measures will come into force on 01.01.2021, the other two areas on 01.07.2021.

The requirement to meet a specific annual performance factor (APR) is no longer applicable. The new assessment basis in the area of BEG individual measures is the "seasonal space heating efficiency" ƞs (=ETAs). An eligible heat pump must achieve at least the following values under average climatic conditions (only necessary in the area of individual measures):


The required ETAs values are fulfilled by all Roth heat pumps
(except ThermoTerra 4 kW).
