PLEASE NOTE! Works may not begin and advance payment may not be made before submitting the application, except for the preparation of an energy label or a construction project. Kui taotlus on esitatud ja oled veendunud, et väikeelamu ja soovitud tegevused vastavad toetuse tingimustele, on lubatud alustada taotletavate töödega, tasuda ettemaksu, sõlmida töövõtulepinguid.

PLEASE NOTE! The prerequisite for applying for the grant is to improve the energy label class of the building by at least one class. You can check the existence of an energy label for a small residence in the Building Register. If the small residence has not yet been issued an energy label based on weighted energy consumption data (KEK label), request it. The KEK label must be submitted for each grant-requested activity. The energy efficiency ratio, or ETA label, does not need to be submitted if the entire facade is insulated, a solar park is installed or the heat source is replaced (e.g. a geothermal heat pump instead of a stove). In all other cases, an ETA label must also be provided. Before you start requesting an energy label to apply for the grant, make sure that the works planned with the aid of the grant will increase the building's energy class. Consider that less extensive work such as insulating the plinth, changing windows, changing the front door, installing an electric car charger or adding a battery for storage to the existing solar panels often does not improve the energy label class of the building. You can find out more at the section of Preparations.

PLEASE NOTE! For anyone interested in purchasing a battery bank and electric car charging infrastructure!
Since the purpose of the grant is to increase the energy efficiency, the most important condition for receiving the grant is the improvement of the energy efficiency class of the residence. In the case of a complete renovation, the building must achieve energy class C (except for buildings of cultural value). In the case of partial renovation, an increase of at least one class is required. If the energy class of a small residence does not increase as a result of a single improvement, or if the residence has already achieved the best possible energy efficiency class A before applying for the grant, then it is not possible to receive the grant. If the grant is used to purchase only a battery bank or install only an electric car charging infrastructure, the recipient of the grant must also conduct additional work that would help improve the energy class of the residence.

PLEASE NOTE! The grant cannot be applied for the purchase of only additional panels or only the inverter.

Important conditions

Who is it for
  • The grant can be applied for the renovation of a detached house or a dwelling with up to two apartments or a terraced house. The residential building must be entered in the building register and the year of its initial use must be indicated. You can check the data about your small residence at www.ehr.ee. If the data does not correspond to the real situation, contact your local government to correct the data.
  • It is not possible to apply for the grant if:
    • the main use of the residence is for reasons other than the one mentioned above in the Building Register, e.g. summer house, garden house, commercial building, auxiliary building, etc.
    • it is a residential building with three or more apartments.

The grant can be applied for if the supported work increases the energy class of the small residential building by at least one class, e.g. from class C to class B. If the energy class of the small residence is already A, it is not possible to apply for the grant.

Main conditions
  • The grant can be used for either partial or complete reconstruction.
  • The application can be submitted by the owner of the property or an authorised person, in the case of joint ownership, one of the owners who has been authorised to represent the other owners.
  • During the complete reconstruction, all external walls and the roof of the building are insulated, all the windows of the living spaces are replaced, the heating system is reconstructed and an intake-exhaust ventilation system with heat recovery is installed. As a result, a minimum of energy efficiency class C is achieved. If any of the listed activities have been done previously (e.g. windows replaced), the grant can only be requested for partial reconstruction. The beneficiary must insure the house for at least five consecutive years from the date of entry into force of the decision to approve the application.
  • In the case of partial reconstruction, individual works are conducted and an increase in the building's energy efficiency value by at least one class must be ensured.
  • The increase in energy efficiency value does not need to be proven and an ETA label does not need to be submitted if the entire facade is insulated, a solar park is installed or the heat source is replaced (a stove, air-to-air heat pump, electric, gas or oil heating is replaced by the air-to-water heat pump, geothermal heat pump or pellet boiler; if the residence already has, for example, an air-to-water heat pump or geothermal heat pump that you want to replace with a newer model, then this is not considered as a replacement of the heat source and the increase in the energy efficiency class must be proven).
    For all other individual works, it is necessary to prove an increase in the energy efficiency class. If the energy class of a small residence does not increase as a result of a single improvement or if the best possible energy efficiency class A has already been achieved, it is not possible to apply for the grant. If the grant is used to purchase a battery bank or install an electric car charging infrastructure, the recipient of the grant must also conduct additional work that would help improve the energy class of the residence.
  • The existence of self-financing is confirmed on the application form, it is not necessary to submit a separate document (account statement, loan offer or loan agreement).
  • The supported activities must be completed within 12 months from the decision to approve the application. In a justified case, it is possible to extend the deadline for the completion of activities once by up to six months. The latest date for the completion of the works is 31 December 2025. Before submitting the application, the supported works may not begin, agreements for the execution of the works may not be concluded, or an advance may not be paid, except for the preparation of a construction project or an energy label.
  • Starting from 1 February 2020, costs related to the design and preparation of the energy label will be supported. You can find out from the Building Code and the local government whether a construction project is needed for the desired works.
  • All expenses must be described, documented and justified in the application. Cash transactions are not permitted.
  • The costs related to the expansion and construction of a small residence are not supported.
  • It is not possible to apply for the grant in the condition that the applicant buys the building materials and performs reconstruction works by themselves. Grant-supported works must be performed by someone who is competent in construction and is registered in the Business Register. More detailed requirements are specified in sections 19–24 of the Building Code. The entry in the Register of Economic Activities is required only for the installation of solar panels.
  • VAT is considered part of self-financing, and the amount of the grant is not affected by VAT.
  • All changes to what was stated on the application must be approved by KredEx. If you want to change the contractor or activities, send an e-mail to [email protected] and we will advise you.

How to apply?

  • The prerequisite for applying for the grant is to improve the energy label class of the building by at least one class. If you want to request an energy label to apply for the grant, make sure that the works planned to be done with the grant increase the energy class. Consider that less extensive works such as insulating the plinth, changing windows, changing the front door, installing an electric car charger or adding a battery for storage to the existing solar panels often do not improve the energy label class of the building, and then it is not possible to apply for the grant.
  • Get approvals for the activities and requirements for the construction project from the local government.
  • If the small residence has not yet been issued an energy label based on weighted energy consumption data (KEK label), then you must acquire it. The energy efficiency ratio, or ETA label, does not need to be submitted if the entire facade is insulated, a solar park is installed or the heat source is replaced (air-to-water heat pump, geothermal heat pump or pellet boiler instead of stove, air-to-air heat pump, electric, gas or oil heating. If the residence already has, for example, an air-to-water heat pump or geothermal heat pump, which you want to replace with a newer model, this is not considered as a replacement of the heat source and you must prove an increase in the energy efficiency class). In all other cases, an ETA label must also be provided.

    Good to know! An energy performance certificate (EPC) is a document that shows how much energy a building or part of a building consumes per square metre of heated surface area per year. Energy consumption is considered the cost of heating and cooling the building, water heating, ventilation, use of electrical equipment, etc.

    The energy label based on weighted energy consumption (KEK) provides information about the actual energy consumption of the existing building.

    The energy efficiency ratio (ETA) energy label provides information about the designed energy demand of the building according to the reconstruction project.

    Make sure that the issued energy labels are also included in the Building Register. Energy labels are issued by persons who have the occupational qualifications listed on the website of the Consumer Protection and Technical Regulatory Authority. You can check occupational qualifications by occupation at the address Occupational Qualification Certificates -  Occupational Qualifications - Register for Occupational Qualifications.
  • Get at least two price quotes for supported works and services (including design and owner supervision), considering that the price quotes must be valid at the time of the application submission. The validity requirement does not apply to quotations taken when commissioning a construction project. If the construction project has been commissioned before the effective date of the regulation, i.e. 8 April, 2024, submitting one price quote or invoice is sufficient.
  • When purchasing solar panels, inverters and batteries, it is not necessary to submit price quotations. In their case, the grant amount is based on the unit price.
  • If you want to connect the renewable energy production device to the distribution grid, ask the distribution grid operator for a connection quote.
  • Construction project in accordance with the Building Code.
  • Energy label (KEK label) based on weighted energy consumption data of the small residence.

  • Construction project in accordance with the Building Code.
  • Energy label (KEK label) based on weighted energy consumption data of the small residence.
  • Technical conditions of connection issued by the network operator of the district heating area.
  • Connection offer issued by the network operator of the district heating area.
  • For complete reconstruction weighted energy consumption (KEK label) and energy efficiency ratio (ETA label).
  • For partial reconstruction weighted energy consumption (KEK label) and energy efficiency ratio (ETA label). If the entire facade of a small residence is insulated, the heat source of a heating device is replaced or a solar park is installed, it is not necessary to submit an energy efficiency ratio label, it is sufficient to submit a weighted energy consumption label.
  • A construction project that complies with the Building Code or a written confirmation from the local government that a construction project is not needed.
  • Price quotes that are valid at the time of application.
  • A power of attorney if the legal representative acts on authorisation.
  • During the processing, communication takes place through the e-toetus environment.
  • Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are submitted.
  • The processing period for the application is up to 60 working days from the submission of the application that meets the requirements, the period will be extended if necessary.
  • If the provided information needs to be amended, the deficiencies must be eliminated within 10 working days.
  • If the application is deemed to not meet the requirements, the Business and Innovation Agency will reject the application.

The use of European Union funds entails the requirement to inform the public about the use of the finances. Non-compliance with the project’s notification rules may lead to partial withdrawal of the grant.

All owners of small residences that received support from European Union funds must place a poster on the facade of the small residence or in another visible place on the property (garden, window, etc.), which must be up from the start of the eligibility period (i.e., the date of the grant decision) until the completion of the work

The reconstruction grants for small residences are allocated from the funds of the European Union Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF). The notification poster must be at least A5 in size, including the RRF logo, which should take at least 25% of the poster's area, and the name of the project, which should make up at least 30% of the poster's height.

The cost of making the poster will be covered by the beneficiary and it must be designed according to the sample. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].

Instructions can also be found in the regulation of the Government of the Republic "Organisation of the implementation of the recovery and resilience plan and general conditions for giving grants".

  • The request for the grant disbursement is submitted through the e-toetus environment. Maksetaotluse täitmist abistava infomaterjaliga saad tutvuda siin.
  • In order for the grant to be disbursed, the activities specified in the application must have been completed and the services must have been paid for at least in the part not covered by the grant.
  • The period for processing a disbursement request is up to 30 working days from the submission of a disbursement request that meets the requirements.
