Subsidies for heat pumps - new subsidy rates from 2020

The Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) rewards the installation of an efficient heat pump with attractive subsidies from the Market Incentive Programme (MAP). The subsidy differentiates between existing and new construction subsidies. There is also a higher subsidy rate for the replacement of an oil heating system.

What subsidy rates are available?
There are no longer flat-rate investment subsidies but instead you will receive a certain percentage of your investment costs back. The amount of the share subsidy is 35 percent of the eligible costs. If an oil heating system is replaced, as much as 45 percent of the investment costs are reimbursed.
