Optimising the use of subsidies
Optimum use of funds
You are planning the implementation of a technical energy project or wish to prepare an energy concept. Make use of public funding. By means of funding programs, the state and federal institutions offer financial support for many different projecting ideas. Hereby, the focus is placed on studies, consultation services, and investment projects in the fields of environmental protection, energy efficiency, and renewable energies.
Is it worth the effort to apply for funding?
In many cases, yes. eta Energy Consulting can support you in the search for suitable funding programs and the correct preparation of the funding application.
This saves you time in your research for funding options and the preparation of the application, increases your chances of the fund being granted, and avoids the risk of your application being turned down due to errors in form or content. We accompany you during the entire projecting phase.
Thus we can support you in the acquisition of subsidies:
- Orientation advice on the topic of subsidies (subsidy advice)
- Individual and project-related research for subsidies
- Preparation of a detailed overview of the eligible funding programmes
- Preparation of an application for funding in accordance with the applicable guidelines
- Summarised cost and expenditure calculation
- Expected ongoing or one-time cost savings and expected profitability (amortization, expected profit)
- Economic efficiency comparison with other methods available on the market
- Description of the environmental protection effects achieved by the planned investments
- Application for an early start of measures to avoid a delay in construction work
- Support during the project phase
- Post-processing and completion (proof of use, final report, etc.)
The prerequisite for a positive funding decision is a meaningful presentation and detailed justification of the planned project in the funding application.

In addition to the technical conception and implementation, we have also acquired subsidies for our customers in these projects.
Cities and municipalities are often faced with the task of converting former industrial areas, barracks, etc. into residential areas. So-called district concepts are usually the basis for decision-making. A multitude of questions have to be considered. An important point is the energy supply of such new residential areas. By working out different supply variants, these can be compared with each other.
In Engelsberg, a biomass heating plant with a capacity of 1,700 kW and a district heating network with a route length of approx. 7,400 m and 180 heat transfer stations were built. Afterwards, the biomass heating plant and the district heating network were optimised during operation.
At Lauterbach castle, which has been owned by the von Hundt family since the 15th century, the oil heating system was replaced by a woodchip heating system. A neighbouring house is also supplied with heat by this system. eta Energieberatung was commissioned with the planning of the wood chip heating with connected local heating network.
eta Energieberatung provided a rough analysis for the evaluation of measures to reduce energy costs. The areas of waste heat utilisation, cooling water, electric drives and fans, lighting optimisation, own power generation, renewable energies and support measures were included.
The waste heat of a local foundry was integrated into the existing heating network. The existing district heating network was extended to connect a school centre. In the course of this, extensive conversion and expansion measures were carried out on the existing hydraulic and control technology and a buffer storage tank was installed.
After successful cooperation with the wood pellet plant, the Stadtwerke Wunsiedel also relied on the technical support of eta Energieberatung for this local heating concept with a wood gas cogeneration unit and pellet boilers.
