BAFA-funded energy consulting — overview of services:

If you want to buy an energy-efficient new building, renovate an existing property into an efficiency house (EH) or switch to renewable energies such as photovoltaics, a KfW loan is an attractive financing option. The lender currently offers two types of funding for your project:


Energy requirement analysis: Our qualified energy consultants analyze your company’s energy consumption. We then create an energy requirement plan


Testing for economic viability: We check all proposed measures for their economic viability and take into account the payback period for your investments.


Advice on legal regulations: We accompany you in the implementation of your energy saving measures, monitor the progress of renovation and ensure the quality of the finished results.


Craftsman service: We work with qualified specialist companies from all over Germany. We would be happy to advise you on the selection of your service providers and find you the best tradesmen at your location.


Planning energy saving measures: We develop tailor-made energy saving and renovation measures, for example for your buildings, processes, heating systems and machines.


Applying for funding: We identify the right government funding programs for your project. You give us the authority to apply for your funding, we do the rest.


Support during implementation: We accompany you in the implementation of your energy saving measures, monitor the progress of the renovation and ensure the quality of the finished results.

The BAFA supports your energy consulting with 80 percent of the eligible net consulting costs. If your operational energy costs exceed 10,000 euros per year, the maximum funding amount is 6,000 euros. If your energy costs are lower, you will receive funding of up to 1,200 euros.

frequently asked Questions

When is an energy audit DIN EN 16247 mandatory? arrow

A regular energy audit has been mandatory for all non-SMEs since 2015 in accordance with Sections 8 - 8d EDL-G (Law on Energy Services and Other Energy Efficiency Measures). As part of the audit, the energy efficiency of the entire operation (buildings, systems, processes, etc.) is checked. If you are a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME), you are exempt from this obligation. 

How often does an energy audit have to be carried out? arrow

The law requires non-SMEs to have a regular energy audit every four years. This obligation does not apply to SMEs. Nevertheless, even as a small or medium-sized company, it is worthwhile to regularly check your energy consumption and exploit all potential savings.

Who can carry out the energy audit? arrow

The BAFA-funded energy audit may only be carried out by energy consultants who are registered on dena's list of energy efficiency experts in the category “Energy advice for non-residential buildings”.

Is energy advice for SMEs subsidized? arrow

The Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) supports energy advice for SMEs with financial subsidies. The funding does not have to be repaid. How much funding you receive for your energy consulting depends, among other things, on the size of your company and the planned energy saving measures. Our IKOSIA experts will be happy to advise you.
