Efficiency Voucher

deadline: closed

The “Vale Eficiência” program is part of a set of measures aimed at combating energy poverty and reinforcing the renovation of buildings, making it possible to increase their energy and environmental performance, thermal comfort and conditions of habitability, health and well-being of families, contributing to the reduction of energy bills and ecological footprint.

Under this programme, within the framework of Portugal’s Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), it is intended to deliver 100,000 “efficiency vouchers” to economically vulnerable families and in situations of potential energy poverty, by 2025, in the amount of €1,300 plus VAT. (Value Added Tax) each, so that they can invest in improving the thermal comfort of their home, either by carrying out interventions in the surroundings, or by replacing or acquiring energy efficient equipment and solutions. The present phase of the Program aims to deliver 20,000 vouchers.

In this way, the actions to be developed in existing residential buildings for permanent housing must contribute to the goals defined in the National Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030 (PNEC 2030), in the Long-Term Strategy for the Renovation of Buildings (ELPRE) and in the National Long-Term Strategy to Combat Energy Poverty, as well as other environmental objectives.

Buildings More Sustainable

deadline: closed

In line with national energy and climate goals with a view to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, the Support for More Sustainable Buildings program, which is in its 2nd phase, aims to finance measures that promote the rehabilitation, decarbonisation, energy efficiency, water efficiency and the circular economy, contributing to the improvement of the energy and environmental performance of buildings. It is therefore intended that the measures to be supported may lead, on average, to at least a 30% reduction in primary energy consumption in the intervened buildings.

Actions to be developed in existing residential buildings that contribute to the goals defined in the National Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030 (PNEC 2030) and in the Long-Term Strategy for the Renovation of Buildings (ELPRE) are eligible for funding through this program. This program is also part of the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), which focuses on climate transition and energy efficiency in buildings as a means of economic recovery. Furthermore, at an European level, it is also framed in the “Renovation Wave”, especially dedicated to addressing the current low rates of renovation of buildings across the EU.
