Description: 
The Biomcasa II programme is a continuation of its predecessor, the Biomcasa programme. The aim of the programme is to establish a funding mechanism that promotes quality and is tailored to the specific needs of users of biomass systems. Private or public companies dealing in the supply and installation of biomass systems and Energy Service Companies may participate in this scheme and gain access to funding, as long as they can demonstrate a certain level of quality in technical services and organisational structure. The total available budget of the programme is EUR 5 million. 100% of the project costs can be covered, but there is a maximum limit of EUR 350,000 per individual project and a maximum of EUR 1 million per qualified company. Funding is allocated according to project type: •T1 projects: Facilities generating hot water and / or heating up to 50 kW in one building - Funding up to EUR 600 / kW. •T2 projects: Facilities generating hot water and / or heating of more than 50 kW in one building - Funding up to EUR 400 / kW. •T3 projects: Facilities generating hot water and / or heating and cooling up to 50 kW in one building - Funding up to EUR 800 / kW. •T4 projects: Facilities generating hot water and / or heating and cooling of more than 50 kW in one building - Funding up to EUR 700 / kW. •T5 projects: facilities generating hot water and / or heating of more than 50 kW in two or more buildings - Funding up to EUR 500 / kW. •T6 projects: Facilities generating hot water and / or heating and cooling of more than 50 kW in two or more buildings - Funding up to EUR 800 / kW.
