The aim of the funding is to conserve finite resources by increasing the use of construction elements made of wood and other renewable raw materials and to make a significant contribution to climate protection in the construction sector by storingCO2.
Eligible is the stored carbon in the context of the following construction measures in the Free State of Bavaria:
- New construction, extension and addition of storeys to buildings of local authorities in timber construction (buildings for public purposes such as administrative buildings, buildings for social infrastructure such as schools and kindergartens)
- New construction, extension and addition of storeys to multi-storey residential buildings in timber construction.
The new building must be planned with a gross floor area of at least 300m2 and the extension and addition of storeys with a gross floor area of at least 100m2.
Eligible to apply are local authorities, also in municipal cooperation in the form of special-purpose agreements and special-purpose associations, as well as natural persons and legal entities under public and private law.
Timber construction in the sense of the guideline is the use of wood in load-bearing structural elements of buildings. The load-bearing structural elements must be predominantly made of wood. However, at least the load-bearing structure of the building envelope and one other load-bearing structural element must be implemented in timber construction.
Proof must be provided for the use of renewable, carbon-storing building materials. This is done using a calculation tool that determines the amount of renewable raw materials used and the associated amount ofCO2 stored.
Type and scope
The grant is awarded as a subsidy without legal entitlement and within the scope of the available budget funds. The amount of the grant is 500 euros per ton of storedCO2.
