Temporary subsidy on the sale price of wood pellets for households

Following the exceptional increase in the price of wood pellets caused by the current international situation, the government has decided to introduce a temporary reduction in the sale price of bulk wood pellets used for primary heating in households, of up to 35%, with a maximum amount of EUR 200 incl. VAT per ton. The reduction applies to deliveries of bulk wood pellets, by tank truck, on the territory of the Grand Duchy:

-          to single-family houses, with a maximum amount of 5 tons per delivery;

-          to residences (at least two housing units), with a maximum amount of 10 tons per delivery.

This measure applies from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2024 for orders from pellet suppliers registered in the register provided for this purpose.
