- 500.000 renovations over three years as opposed to the current 30.000 per year
- 70% will be for housing
- 30% will be for public buildings, half for central government and half for regional, concentrating on schools and hospitals.
- The housing beneficieries will be mostly co-ownerships* and the grant will vary from 35% to 70% of costs according to the cost of the works and the degree of energy saving achieved.
* Spain has a historically comparatively very high proportion of owner-occupiers and very low proportion of tenants.
- Owners will get higher amounts of grants for renovations that take longer to amortise by means of lower light or gas bills.
- On top of this, there will be tax advantages for owners achieving a 60% energy saving and a higher EPC rating (even though its own definition of deep renovation is an energy saving of 60%, the European Commission allows funding as of 30%).
- ccessibilty improvements can be included in the funding coverage.
- For regeneration projects for entire neighbourhoods where the renovation is not just for buildings but for the whole urban environment, the grants are from 70% to 100% of costs, the 100% coverage being reserved for poor areas.
- The government will allow construction companies, energy companies and banks to manage blok projects covering planning, works and funding management, so as to make it easier for building owners.
