What energy grants am I entitled to in Brussels in 2020?

Last updated on 18 February 2020

In 2020, grants will be awarded covering up to 50% of the invoice for audits and energy studies, insulation work, heating or ventilation.

Good news, since the general conditions for receiving a grant and the application formalities have been made easier. So why put off making your home more energy-efficient?

For what work can I apply for an energy grant?

Nothing will change compared with 2019, except the grant for an efficient gas convector will disappear.

Grants A: energy audits and studies

  • Using the results of an energy audit you can identify the weak points of your home, apartment building or professional building and take the necessary measures.
  • Are you considering installing a ventilation or cogeneration system, a solar boiler, a wood-fired heating appliance, renewable energy, a heating network, etc.? Then you can apply for a grant that covers the feasibility study.
  • Vulnerable families can obtain a grant of €100 for the mandatory inspection of gas appliances

The grant can be up to € 400 per dwelling or € 3,000 per apartment building or professional building.

Grants B: insulation and ventilation

  • The energy grants for insulation are intended only for buildings earmarked for renovation and cover roof, floor, walls and glazing. The insulation work is reimbursed for an amount of between € 8 and 75/m². In addition, there is a bonus for choosing natural insulation material and the energy savings you will make thanks to this work.
  • Are you considering investing in controlled mechanical ventilation (CMV) with heat recovery? Then you are entitled to a grant that varies from € 1,250 to a maximum of € 3,500, depending on your income.

20 to 50% of the invoice amount

The grants cover on average 20% of the invoice. The final amount depends on your income: the lower this is, the more substantial the grant. It can sometimes be as much as 50%.

Conditions for obtaining these grants

A private individual, group, co-ownership or even a tenant can claim an energy grant as long as the work relates to a building located in the Brussels-Capital Region. The grant can be requested for major or simple renovations, but also for an extension of the building.
