Changes in the area of subsidies in accordance with BAFA Module 3 in 2024
In the area of subsidies for energy management, BAFA Module 3 of the EEW in particular plays a decisive role. With the ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court at the end of 2023, it was initially unclear whether and to what extent subsidies would be available. It can now be assumed that applications can be submitted again from 15.02.24! You can find all the important information on funding under Module 3 in this guide.
What is subsidized?
BAFA Module 3 provides funding for measurement and control technology, sensor technology and energy management software. In particular, the purchase and installation of energy management
- of energy management software and the training of personnel who are to work with this software by external third parties.
- Measurement, control and regulation technology (MCR) and sensor technology for monitoring and efficient control of energy and material flows for integration into an energy or environmental management system.

What are the eligibility requirements?
- The energy management software must be included in the BAFA list of eligible software solutions in order to be eligible for funding. The econ4 energy management software is included in this list.
- Measurement and sensor technology must be directly related to an energy management or environmental management system. This direct link exists if the results of the measurements are incorporated into the management process via a listed software solution.
- Control technology must be directly related to an energy management or environmental management system. This direct link exists if the effect of the control/regulation is quantified using a listed software solution.
How much is the investment grant?
