"Energy Efficiency at Household Buildings"

The Program Guide

The Annexes

The energy upgrade proposal (combination of interventions) which is submitted with the application must satisfy the following condition, which constitutes the minimum energy aim of the Program: upgrade by at least one energy class or, alternatively, annual primary energy efficiency (conservation) higher than the 30% of the energy consumption of the reference building (kWh/m2). In order for the above condition to be met, the materials and systems to be used for the interventions should have energy certifications.

It is noted that increased energy efficiency is accomplished when materials and electromechanical installations meet, after the interventions, the minimum specifications set in paragraphs 2 and 3 of Article 8 of KENAK (“for new buildings or buildings undergoing major renovation”), in accordance with and the relevant Technical Directives of the Technical Chamber of Greece (

Furthermore, materials and electromechanical systems, for which mandatory provisions are foreseen under relevant legislation, must have the CE marking.
All materials meeting the above conditions are eligible.

Within the context of the Program, eligible works are only those recommended by the Energy Inspector ), which fall only within the following three categories of eligible interventions:

  1. Replacement of doors/windows (frames/glazing) and installation of shading systems.
  2. Installation of heat insulation on a building shell including the terrace/roof and pilotis area.
  3. Upgrading of the heating and hot water supply systems

In describing the proposals, the Energy Inspector must lay down the specifications, as well as the technical and energy characteristics of the structural components and systems, required for calculating the energy result and verifying that the above program requirements are met.

By the completion of the project the Material / equipment / system suppliers must submit a Legal Statement under Law 1599/1986, in accordance with the sample provided in Annex IX-B - Material Supplier’s Legal Statement, accompanied by copies of certification documentation with regard to the energy characteristics of materials/systems. The project Contractors must submit a Legal Statement under Law 1599/1986, in accordance with the sample provided in Annex ΙΧ_A - Project Contractor’s Legal Statement, certifying proper application/installation, according to the specifications set by the supplier and/or Energy Inspector.
In case where both the project construction / installation and the supply of materials are undertaken by the same person/company, then one Legal Statement must be submitted, in accordance with the sample provided in Annex IX-C  - Material Supplier & Project Contractor’s Legal Statement (if they are the same person).

Within the context of the Program, eligible expenditures concern the interventions to be carried out following the issue of the first Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

Maximum cost for work expenditures

The categories and subcategories of interventions and the maximum cost for eligible expenditures, per category of expenditure (1Ai to 3E), according to the energy characteristics, are shown in the following table.

The above expenditures, per specific intervention, include:

  • Additional works necessary for the completion of the intervention, such as scaffolding systems, plastering works, minor works for restoring the appearance of the element on which the intervention has taken place, dismantling and collection of old materials, anti-mosquito screens, formation of drainage slopes on the roof, moisture insulation on the roof, works and interventions necessary for the smooth operation/functioning of heat insulation, necessary interventions on the roof (e.g. replacement of roof tiles), etc.
  • The cost of works, including any possible contributions to be paid to the Social Security Organization (IKA) for construction works which, according to existing legislation (non-sheltered professions), are borne by the Program recipient as “Project Developer”.
The above maximum cost for eligible expenditures are inclusive of VAT, which is an eligible expenditure under the Program.
