The Environment Agency (Administration de l'environnement – AEV) grants subsidies for investment projects undertaken to:
- improve the long-term sustainability of a residential building;
- implement technical installations making use of renewable energy sources.
This Klimabonus aid can only be granted once and only for a residential building located in Luxembourg. The 'residential building' may be:
- a single-family house; or
- a unit in a multi-unit residential building.
Who is concerned
This Klimabonus aid can be requested by:
- natural persons;
- legal persons established under private law;
- public legal persons other than the State.
Applicants may be:
- the legal representative of a group of natural or legal persons, provided that the legal representative is part of this group;
- the person(s) who own(s) the residence, except when there is a change of ownership and the new owner of the residence and/or technical installation forgoes the aid in question for the benefit of the former owner who made the investments.
Only residential buildings – whether wholly or partially residential - for which the building permit is applied for between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2022 are eligible for aid under this financial aid scheme.
In addition, the building must satisfy certain technical criteria (see the Grand Ducal regulation of 7 April 2022).
To be eligible for Klimabonus aid for a new building project, applicants must obtain at least 60 % of the points required for the selection of 46 LENOZ sustainability criteria (Lëtzebuerger Nohaltegkeets-Zertifikat fir Wunngebaier) in each of the 'Environment', 'Building and technical installations' and 'Functionality' categories.
Depending on the type of building and the year in which the building permit is applied for, specific additional conditions must also be satisfied. These include the sustainability criteria 4.1.1 and 5.8.1, as provided for in Appendix 2 of the Grand Ducal regulation.
Applications for financial aid must be filed with the Single point of contact for housing assistance (Guichet unique des aides au logement) after the end of the works and within 4 years from 31 December of the calendar year to which the invoice relates.
Invoices must be issued between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2026 inclusive.
Applications for financial aid must be submitted no later than 31 December 2028.

If the application is for a commonhold property or multi-unit residence, the applicant must attach:
- appendix form COLL-2022;
- a power of attorney from each owner;
- the list of the flats, specifying the energy reference area per flat, excluding the common areas.
The Single point of contact for housing assistance may ask the applicant to provide any documents it deems necessary to process the file.
Note: If the aid is granted, the beneficiary's file may be reviewed at any time.
Amount of subsidy
The granted amounts are calculated based on the reference energy area shown on the energy performance certificate.
For a single-family house, the reference energy area is multiplied by the amount of the specific financial aid shown in the table below.
For a unit in a multi-unit residence, the reference energy area of the housing, excluding the common areas, is multiplied by the amount of the specific financial aid shown in the table below.
For dwellings for which a building permit was applied for between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2022 inclusive, the financial aid is as follows:
|Energy reference area (m2)||Financial aid (euros/m2)|
|I||up to 150||160|
|Dwelling in a multi-unit building with a reference energy area less than or equal to 1,000 m2|
|I||up to 80||140|
|II||between 80 - 120||85|
|Dwelling in a multi-unit building with a reference energy area greater than or equal to 1,000 m2|
|I||up to 80||100|
|II||between 80 - 120||55|
I: the levels of financial aid are applied up to 150 m2 of the reference energy area of a single-family house, and up to 80 m2 of the reference energy area of the dwelling, excluding common areas.
II: the levels of financial aid apply for the range of the reference energy area of the dwelling between 80 m2 and 120 m2, excluding common areas.
The financial aid shown in the table above is reduced by 20 % for new sustainable dwellings:
- for which the building permit was applied for after 1 January 2019; and
- which satisfy only 8 items in the LENOZ sustainability criterion 'Assembly and dismantling capacity' in the 'Buildings and technical installations' category (item 5.8.1 of Appendix 2 of the Grand Ducal Regulation of 23 December 2016).
- EUR 24,000 for a single-family house;
- EUR 14,600 for a flat in a residential building.
Payment of aid
The aid is generally wired directly to the applicant's account.
If the application for financial aid is submitted by the legal representative of a group of natural or legal persons, the aid is transferred directly to the bank account of the legal representative, who must immediately credit the bank accounts of the natural or legal persons concerned with their respective share of the aid.
A copy of these payments must be sent to the Single point of contact for housing assistance.
Repayment of aid
If the applicant has already received the aid, they may be required to return it, if:
- the applicant is found to have made inaccurate or incomplete statements in order to obtain the aid; or
- the applicant fails to provide the Single point of contact for housing assistance with the requested declaration, information or documents.
