Name of programme:
Österreichweite Förderung für PV & Stromspeicher PV- und Speicheranlagen in der Land- und Forstwirtschaft (Austrian funding for PV and storage systems: PV and storage systems in agriculture and forestry)

Aim/purpose of funding:
The Klima- und Energiefonds (Climate and Energy Fund) is funding the installation of photovoltaic installations in agriculture and forestry to support general decarbonisation plans.

What battery storage systems are funded?
It exclusively funds newly installed, stationary photovoltaic installations of greater than 5 kW peak up to and inclusive of the funding limit of 50 kW peak operated in parallel with the grid, with and without storage systems up to a funding limit of 3 kWh/kW (based on the output of the photovoltaic installation), as well as storage systems that are retrofitted on existing PV installations.

Funding conditions, amount of funding:
All Austrian agricultural and forestry operations are eligible to apply. Each applicant (each registration number) can apply for funding for a maximum of 50 kW peak and a maximum of 3 kWh/kW usable storage capacity.

  • EUR 350/kWh for 0–5 kWh usable storage system capacity
  • EUR 300/kWh for each further kWh greater than 5 and up to 10 kWh usable storage system capacity
  • EUR 280/kWh for each further kWh greater than 10 and up to 20 kWh usable storage system capacity
  • EUR 250/kWh for each further kWh greater than 20 kWh usable storage system capacity

Duration of programme, budget:
ongoing
