Green transition subsidies for apartment associations

The green future is in our own hands. In order for apartment associations to also introduce solutions that save both energy and the environment, there are various subsidies that can be applied for.

Several subsidies are available to apartment associations on the websites of the City of Tallinn and Tartu Municipality, which can be used to determine the energy consumption of their building and contribute to increasing its energy efficiency with renewable and modern energy solutions. Let’s take a closer look at them.

Tallinn

Green transition subsidy

The green transition subsidy consists of three separate grants: the audit grant, the facade renovation grant and the yard maintenance grant. The purpose of the subsidy is to reduce the impact of urban life on the environment and contribute to the reconstruction of apartment buildings, making them more energy-efficient.

Applications for the facade renovation grant and the audit grant can be submitted to the city year round and are accepted until the budget is exhausted. The yard maintenance grant is now closed. The application deadline was 1 March.

  • Facade renovation grant

As part of the green transition subsidy, the support can be applied for to:

– install equipment for renewable energy production, energy conversion and energy storage (including solar panels and heat pumps);
– design a factory modular reconstruction of an apartment building;
– reconstruct an apartment building with factory modular elements.

NB! The grant is for apartment buildings constructed and utilised before 2000.

See the application conditions and the amount of the grant on the website of the City of Tallinn.

  • Audit grant

As part of the green transition subsidy, the support can be applied for to:

– carry out an energy audit of an apartment building;
– carry out an audit of the load-bearing capacity of the roof and/or balconies of an apartment building in order to determine the possibility of installing solar panels or other equipment necessary for the production of renewable energy.

NB! Audits can be done for apartment buildings constructed and utilised before 2000.

See the application conditions and the amount of the grant on the website of the City of Tallinn.

Grant for follow-up activities of the balcony and awning audit

The follow-up grant can only be applied for together with the audit grant. The purpose of the grant is to help apartment associations carry out construction work specified in the report of the balcony and awning audit.

The audit follow-up grant can be applied for:

– after receiving the audit grant;
– if the construction work necessary to eliminate the deficiencies specified in the report of the balcony and awning audit has been done;
– if the apartment building was constructed and utilised before 2000.

Applications can be submitted year round until the budget allocated for the grant is exhausted.

See the amount of the grant on the website of the City of Tallinn.

Advice from an energy expert: a storage solution allows you to get the most out of solar panels

Estonians’ interest in producing electricity from the sun is growing. This is confirmed both by the number of electricity producers joining the grid and connection applications from micro-producers, which are setting new records this year. In order to better manage monthly expenses and income from produced electricity, we recommend considering a storage solution.
