The description and particularities of each of these actions are specified in the annex to the call.
The eligible actions included in each of the listed typologies will be carried out in buildings intended for one or more of the following uses:
Single-family dwelling buildings.
Buildings of collective residential housing typology.
Buildings for any other use (administrative, health, educational, cultural, etc.) than those regulated by article 2.1 of Law 38/1999, of November 5, on Building Planning (LOE).
Likewise, eligible actions may be framed in one of the following options:
Option A: Incentives for interventions in complete existing buildings, including single-family homes.
Option B: Incentives for interventions on one or more dwellings or premises in the same building, considered individually or as parts of an existing building.
Only actions whose investment has been carried out after the date of registration of the aid application will be considered eligible, and any cost related to the execution of the action that has been previously invoiced will not be considered eligible, without prejudice to the costs corresponding to preparatory actions that are necessary to submit the application or carry out the corresponding investments, such as projects, technical reports, certificates, etc., which may be considered eligible, even if they had been previously invoiced, provided that, in all In this case, these preparatory actions would have started after August 7, 2020, the date of entry into force of the Aid Program in accordance with the provisions of article 4 of Royal Decree 737/2020, of August 4.
The actions subject to aid must justify a reduction in final energy consumption of 10% with respect to their starting situation.
The actions to be supported must improve the total energy rating of the building by at least one letter measured on the carbon dioxide emissions scale (kg CO2 / m2 year), with respect to the initial energy rating of the building. This criterion will not apply in the following cases:
When the building proves to have an energy rating A and improvement measures are proposed; in this case, the additional energy efficiency aid that will be applied will be that corresponding to the final energy rating A.
When the building, being one of those included in section 2.c) of this article, does not have a procedure for its energy rating. In this case you must reduce your final energy consumption by 20% as an effect equivalent to improving one letter.
This improvement in its energy rating may be obtained by carrying out a typology of action or a combination of several, as well as by carrying out partial measures of one or more different actions. The energy certification of the building will be carried out in accordance with the regulations, through recognized official computer programs.
The project object of the aid must be within the territory of the Valencian Community.
The following actions will not be eligible:
Those made in buildings built in 2007 or later.
Interventions in which the built surface or volume is increased.
Interventions in existing buildings that lead to a change in the use of the building.
For the application of the aid corresponding to the use of the building, depending on whether it is for housing or for a different use, the surface built above ground will be considered, which will be justified by cadastral consultation. In this sense, to be considered a building for residential use, at least 70% of its built surface above ground must be used for this specific use. In this case, the amount of the aid will be applied as housing use to the entire area on which it acts.
Amount of Aid
The amount of the aid will be the sum of the Base Aid and the Additional Aid that may correspond, in each case, depending on the fulfillment of the criteria indicated in section 3 of this article.
The amount of the Base Aid will be different if the actions are carried out under Option A and / or Option B and will depend on the type of action (see summary table of grants).
The Additional Help will be graduated based on the criteria, social, energy efficiency and integrated action, as defined below:
Energy efficiency: actions that raise the building's energy rating to obtain an energy class "A" or "B", on the CO2 scale, or increase the initial energy rating by two letters, according to the procedure established in the Royal Decree 235/2013.
Integrated action: The following cases will be entitled to additional help for integrated action:
Social criterion: actions that are carried out in housing buildings that are definitively classified under any public protection regime by the competent body of the Valencian Community, or actions carried out in residential buildings located in the Urban or Rural Regeneration and Renovation Areas, in accordance with with the State Housing Plan 2018-2021, regulated by Royal Decree 106/2018. Those consumers who have been granted the social bonus may also take advantage of this social criterion.
Buildings for residential use that simultaneously carry out the combination of two or more types of action than those defined in the annex, one of them being compulsory on the thermal envelope (type 1) that supposes a minimum decrease in global demand for heating and cooling of 30%, combined with another action on the thermal installation of type 2 (subtypes 2.2 to 2.4) that involves, at least, the replacement of 60% of the existing thermal generation power. In the event that a solar thermal installation is carried out (subtype 2.1), the condition will be that it covers at least 30% of the energy demand for sanitary hot water and / or swimming pool heating, calculated as established in the Technical Code of the Building in the case of typology S1 or 30% of the demand for heating and / or cooling in the case of typologies S2 and S3.
Buildings for other uses, different from housing, that simultaneously carry out the combination of two or more types of action than those defined in the annex, one of them being compulsory on the thermal envelope (type 1) that involves a minimum decrease in the Global heating and cooling demand of 30%, combined with another action on the thermal installation of type 2 (subtypes 2.2 to 2.4) that supposes, at least, the replacement of 60% of the existing thermal generation power. In the event that a solar thermal installation is carried out (subtype 2.1), the condition will be that it covers at least 30% of the energy demand for sanitary hot water and / or swimming pool heating, calculated as established in the Technical Code of the Building in the case of typology S1 or 30% of the demand for heating and / or cooling in the case of typologies S2 and S3.
Buildings for other uses, different from housing, that simultaneously carry out the combination of two or more types of action than those defined in the annex, one of them being compulsory on the thermal envelope (type 1) that involves a minimum decrease in the Global demand in heating and cooling of 30%, combined with another action of type 3 (interior lighting) that involves a renovation of more than 25% of the lighting surface that meets the basic requirement HE-3 of the Technical Code of the building.
In the three previous cases, one of the types of action (2 or 3) may be replaced by the realization of a photovoltaic solar installation or other renewable electricity generation technology, with or without accumulation, intended for the building's self-consumption when its power installed is at least 10% of the contracted electrical power. The photovoltaic installation will not be considered an eligible cost.
Buildings included within a renewable energy community or a citizen energy community will be eligible for additional aid.
The above actions must be duly justified through the energy rating of the current building and the future rehabilitated building.
In the case of companies that are companies or entities that carry out commercial or commercial activity, the additional investment costs necessary to achieve a higher level of energy efficiency or to promote the production of energy from renewable sources are considered eligible costs (Articles 38 and 41 of Regulation (EU) No. 651/2014, of the Commission, of June 17, 2014) and will be determined by the difference between the eligible cost of the project and a reference investment of a similar project, which implies less energy efficiency and which it could have been credibly done without the help.
In the event that the beneficiaries are individuals, non-profit organizations or public entities and non-economic activities are supported by these that do not represent an economic advantage for a company, in these cases the eligible cost will be the eligible cost of the project.
On the other hand, eligible costs are those that are necessary to achieve the energy objectives of this Program, and that are indicated in the Annex of the call for aid for each of the above types of action, and those that are listed below :
