Funding schemes for system owners
In Germany there are various providers of funding schemes for renewable energies:
KfW Renewable Energy Scheme
The KfW Banking Group offers various schemes for funding solar systems depending on the size and type of system. Loans with reduced rates of interest and grace periods during start-up can be offered for example. You can submit an application for a KfW investment loan in any German state through your local bank – before you invest.
Further information on the various schemes offered by the KfW can be found in the Outline of Renewable Energy Schemes and on the website of the KfW Banking Group.
In some German states, regional funding programmes also exist, e.g. ZEP-Tech in Saarland, the NBank’s innovation funding programme in Lower Saxony.
