Grants for Energy Efficiency in Buildings
The minimum energy efficiency requirements for buildings are included in Royal Decree 314/2006 (Technical Building Code) Royal Decree 47/2007 (Building Energy Certification) and Royal Decree 1027/2007 (Regulations on Building Heating Installations - RITE). These regulations are mandatory. Additional improvements are in some case granted through several economic support lines managed by IDAE and the Autonomous Regions governments. In December 2007, the Spanish government announced that it would provide EUR 1 billion worth of subsidies for the refurbishment of existing residential buildings between 2008 and 2012, together with EUR 2 billion in credit for energy efficiency improvements to homes. Additionally, the government said it would provide EUR 200 million for energy efficiency improvements to schools and public buildings in large towns and cities.
