Law on Energy Efficiency
This law regulates 1) the direction of funding for measures to increase energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy, 2) the abstraction and payment of electricity from renewable energy and cogeneration plants and the levying of a levy on electricity consumption. It aims to transpose Directive 2004/8 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 February 2004 on the promotion of cogeneration based on a useful heat demand in the internal energy.
Art. 3 states that the state promotes the following domestic measures:
a) thermal insulation of existing buildings;
b) construction of minergie buildings;
c) space heating and heating of process water through particularly energy-efficient and ecological building services systems;
d) heating of service water by thermal solar collectors;
e) production of electrical energy from renewable energies or according to the principle of combined heat and power;
f) energy production through demonstration objects;
g) energy production by other plants.
The document further details the states' priorities in terms of energy efficiency and renewable energy, and the types of incentives.
