- Each year building owners must pay an amount into an energy savings account linked to the specific building. The scheme will apply to all buildings; private as well as public
- The annual payment into the account is determined per square metre of heated area on the basis of the energy standard of the building, which is determined on the basis of the building’s rating on the A-G scale under the energy labelling scheme. Buildings with top rating will not have to pay.
- The account may be spent on certified consultancy in connection with energy renovation, and subsequently as a contribution to implementing the renovations
- After the energy improvements, the building is once again classified on the A-G scale as the basis for the future reduced payment into the energy savings account.
