Energy-efficient construction is a long-term investment that provides savings on utilities. The IQ Energy Lending Program, supported by the European Union, provides even more opportunities. Under its conditions, the one can receive compensation up to € 3,000 for the implementation of energy-efficient solutions, such as insulation a house and installation of energy-saving equipment, particularly when building new cottages.
EURO HOUSE offers to make a choice in favor of energy efficient buildings and become a participant of the IQ Energy Program that is held under the auspices of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. It is aimed at increasing the energy efficiency of housing in Ukraine and reducing carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. Any physical individual who is interested in energy-efficient construction can become a participant of the program.
According to the terms of the IQ Energy Program, a private person can receive compensation up to 35% of the loan taken from partner banks of the Program to implement energy-efficient solutions in construction. The maximum amount of compensation for one person is 3000 euros.
When building a house, the one can implement several energy-efficient solutions (or the implementation of one solution can be split into several technological stages) and apply for several loans for different people who will have access to the cottage. It can be not only a house owner, but also his relatives and family members. Thus, it is possible to receive compensation up to 9000 euros with the participation of 3 family members, and even up to 12,000 euros with the participation of four, respectively.
4 banks issue credits - OTP Bank, Ukrsibbank, Raiffeisen Bank Aval and Credit Agricole.
In order to receive compensation, the one needs to buy on credit and install or use energy-efficient solutions in the construction that are listed in the IQ Energy Program catalog. This compensation applies not only to the costs of purchasing equipment and building materials, but can also cover the costs of related products as well as installation and shipping services, if they are also issued on credit.
The compensation under the IQ Energy Program is provided only for solutions that comply with current building codes and regulations.
Energy-efficient solutions that the one can save on
The IQ Energy Program features several categories of energy-efficient solutions when it is possible to receive compensation for the construction of cottages. These solutions include:
- installation of modern heating systems, as an example, with the insulation of pipelines and installation of appropriate equipment (energy efficient radiators, circulation pumps, heat accumulators, thermostats, etc.);
- purchase and installation of energy efficient equipment - high-efficiency gas boilers, solid fuel boilers for biomass, solar collectors, heat pumps, recuperators;
- thermal insulation of building's enclosing structures - insulation of a floor, external walls and roof;
- installation of energy-efficient entrance doors;
- purchase and installation of heat meters.
Managers and specialized professionals of EURO HOUSE are ready to conduct detailed consultations on raising the level of energy efficiency in the construction of a cottage. They will also help with the selection of equipment and building materials in the IQ Energy Program catalog.
In order to receive compensation under the IQ Energy Program, a number of conditions must be followed when building a house.
|In addition to the contract for construction of a cottage, an additional contract for purchase and use in the construction (installation, transportation, etc.) of energy-efficient solutions that are entered in the IQ Energy Program catalog is concluded.|
|Under the second contract, credit arrangements are fulfilled in one of the partner banks of the Program (OTP Bank, Ukrsibbank, Raiffeisen Bank Aval or Credit Agricole), and then follows purchase and use of appropriate materials and equipment in the construction.|
|In order to receive compensation, it is necessary to confirm the successful installation of equipment or the use of energy-efficient building materials within a period not later than four months after the date of purchase or credit arrangements. The grounds for the compensation payment is a set of necessary documents (certificates of compliance, financial and technical documentation, photographic evidence before, during and after this work execution, etc.).|
|After completion of the work, the project consultant examines (remotely or on site) the object and determines the amount of compensation within the IQ Energy Program. Then, partner banks make payment of funds.|
