Revision of Flemish premium for home batteries as from 1 April 2021

This news item was written according to the state of affairs at the time of publication. The contents are subject to changes in legislation.

On the proposal of Flemish Energy Minister Zuhal Demir (N-VA), the Flemish government is changing the premium for a home battery from 1 April 2021.

Owners of solar panels with a digital counter who want to buy a home battery, can count from April 1 on a premium to 300 euros per kilowatt hour, 50 euros more than the current premium. At the same time, the maximum amount of the subsidy, which is now 3,200 euros per installation, will be reduced to 2,550 euros. In addition, the subsidy will be systematically reduced year after year until it reaches zero in 2025.

The previously limited budget that was provided for 2021 has now been substantially increased to 22 million euros. From 1 April 2021, you will have 6 months to complete your dossier after submission. Until then, you must, as before, submit your dossier within 3 months of the invoice date. The 60% injection limit will be retained for the time being, although the Flemish Government would like to abolish this as a premium condition. However, the decision on this is not yet final. In any case, the AlphaESS smart home batteries are equipped for this, and can even go beyond the conditions set by the Flemish government.

Full details and the terms and conditions which remain otherwise unchanged can be found here.
