Belgium Domestic Energy Storage System Subsidy

2020-11-17

In Belgium, Minister Lydia Peeters announced the long-awaited subsidy for home batteries.


What is it? And how could it benefit you? Allow us to explain:


How Much You Could Obtain from the Subsidy?

√EUR 250 per kWh capacity of the battery

√Maximum EUR 3,200 per system

√Maximum 35% of the total cost could be covered


√The total investment cost is the sum of:

    1.Purchase price incl. VAT of the storage system.

    2.The cost of the battery inverter. (With a hybrid PV inverter and a battery inverter, 50% of the cost price of the inverter will be charged)

    3.The installation costs.


√As for the leasing of the battery system, the investment cost is the total leasing cost incurred in the first ten years of the lease contract.


√If you do not have a digital meter yet and need to ask the energy operator for it, you can charge for installation and commissioning, including meter box (if necessary) and other necessary work. You can then increase your subsidy amount up to 300 euros


Are You Eligible?

People who own a grid-tired battery system in Flanders is eligible for the project, companies are excluded.

Per connection (EAN number) eligible for only 1 subsidy every 10 years.


Technical Requirements

√A bi-directional, digital meter is necessary. If you do not have a digital meter yet and need to ask the energy operator for it, you can charge for installation and commissioning, including meter box (if necessary) and other necessary work. You can then increase your subsidy amount up to 300 euros.

For requesting, add a copy of the approved quotation for the placement of the smart meter. The subsidy cannot be combined with the 15-year right to reverse counter.


√The installation must be carried out by a certificated installer, who is approved and registered with the energy operator.


√A decentralized power generator with a maximum power of 10 kW (e.g. solar panels), small wind turbines, etc.) or solar panels with inverters which has maximum 10 kVA AC power is needed.


√The installed battery cannot be a lead battery.


√The installed system must have a two-way communication interface.


√It must has a feed-in limit of 60% of the maximum inverter power or a smart control of the installation that yields the same result.


Application Process

The Environment Department will process the applications in the order of submitting.

The total budget is 5 million euros so far.


AlphaESS storage systems with the cobalt-free lithium iron phosphate technology all fall within the scope of the requirements.
