Funding 1 Lower Saxony

Name of programme
Lower Saxony funding programme for stationary battery storage systems

Aim/purpose of funding
Funds for investing in a stationary storage system that is combined with either constructing a new photovoltaic installation connected to the distribution grid and with an output of at least 4 kWp, or for expanding an existing photovoltaic installation.
Funding is only provided for investment in the battery storage system and not the PV installation.

What battery storage systems are funded?
Only new battery storage systems are funded. They must be equipped with a forecast-based battery management system and operate for at least five years.
Funding is only provided for a storage capacity of max. 1 kWh per 1.2 kWp installed system capacity of the new PV installation. Any storage capacity exceeding this ratio is not eligible for funding.

Funding conditions, amount of funding

The following may apply: companies, natural persons, business partnerships with legal capacity and legal persons under private law, local authorities, municipal associations, special-purpose associations, foundations, other entities and institutions under public law, and companies owned by regional administrative authorities.

The funding is provided as a non-repayable subsidy. It covers up to 40% of the net investment cost for a photovoltaic battery storage system.
The maximum funding amount is EUR 50,000.
Further bonuses can be granted:
– EUR 500 per project where the project involves installing a new, load management-enabled e-vehicle charging point.
– EUR 800 for projects with an installed/expanded photovoltaic installation output exceeding 10 kWp.
– EUR 20 per m2 of photovoltaic modules used as roofing for car parks and other structures with raised photovoltaic installations.

Duration of programme, budget
Open for applications until 30 September 2022.

Self builds, used systems or prototypes are not eligible for funding. Leasing models are excluded from the funding.
