With its eco-subsidies, the province of Styria is making a significant contribution to a forward-looking energy policy. Subsidies are provided for converting existing fossil fuel boilers, multi-fuel burners and electricity heating systems to solutions such as pellet heating systems, wood chip, split log and dual fuel boilers, and also air heat pumps. Attention: In the greater Graz area, split log and dual fuel boilers are not subsidised.
Private households, micro-enterprises and public institutions can all apply for the subsidies. Increased subsidy rates are available for (young) farmers and mountain farms. The subsidy is capped at a maximum of 30 per cent of the eligible investment costs and can be combined with the federal “Get away from Oil & Gas” subsidy and also municipal subsidies.
Pellet & wood chip boilers
subsidy of up to €2,600
Split log and dual fuel boilers
subsidy of up to €2,400
Air heat pump

Two-stage procedure for subsidies:
1/ Step: Submit the application for subsidy
Submit the application for subsidy before the system is delivered and installed. You can submit the application for subsidy online, via email, post or fax. The subsidy will be reserved for you as soon as you receive the application number. You then have nine months to carry out the heating replacement.
2/ Step: Report completion
You should also submit the completion notification within the 9-month period online or by responding to the completion notification sent via email, post or fax to a submission office. The subsidy from the province of Styria will then be paid out.
