  • Possibility of assistance

  • Innovative solutions

To make this measure more effective and tailored to the specific context of your company, we recommend that you first perform an overall analysis of your energy situation.

Replacement of a traditional oven with a multi-level oven (baking ovens)

The project consists in replacing a conventional oven that does not allow to bake different products simultaneously with a multi-level oven that optimises the capacity of the oven, thus reducing its operating time for the same production.

Installing this technology, which has been available on the market for more than 5 years, will allow the company to save up to 10% on its electricity consumption as well as somewhat reduce its carbon footprint. While the cost of energy alone cannot justify this measure, it allows greater flexibility and potentially an optimisation of baking time and therefore an increase in yield. This measure is not easy to implement and requires a production shutdown during installation.

Energy and environmental impact

These ovens can increase the yield of bakeries. The different oven levels can be set to different temperatures, humidity levels and air flows. Hence, they offer greater flexibility to production processes and also help reduce energy losses by allowing better control of energy use.

Subsidy application

State subsidy application

Please note: any application for government or non-government subsidies must comply with the “incentive effect”, subject to compliance with the subsidy conditions.
To ensure that the incentive effect of the aid is respected, no binding commitments may be made (acceptance of a quote; advance)

  • SME Packages – Sustainability
    • Flat-rate subsidy of €5.000 for small and medium-sized companies for projects to reduce their environmental impact, costing between €5.000 and €6.650 excluding VAT
    • For any questions:

N.B. While several state subsidies cannot be granted for the same project, they can be combined with assistance from energy suppliers.

Subsidies from electricity and natural gas suppliers

Since 2015, natural gas and electricity suppliers are required to make energy savings for consumers under the obligation scheme. Since then, energy suppliers have been offering support and advice, as well as subsidy programmes for consumers to implement energy efficiency measures. The amount of the premium is proportional to the annual energy saving (in MWh). The following suppliers offer this service for companies:

N.B.: Supplier subsidies can be combined with a state subsidy for the same project.
