"By doing this we are following the recommendations of the Solidarity Pact II (a political agreement between the regional authorities and universities in the German region of Baden Württemberg dealing with future financing), which includes the intention to increase financial means used towards energy-saving measures for the maintenance of substance of sports facilities," explained Bernd Messerschmid, vice president and chairman of the sports facilities planning commission.

This means that plans submitted for construction of sports facilities which include energy-saving measures, will be approved as soon as possible. This is not self-evident with a back-log of planned projects amounting to household budgets. For the sport clubs, rapid planning approval provides liquidity advantages and, in addition, they can lower their energy costs earlier in this way.
Energy-saving measures are for example, insulation, replacement of heating systems, solar technology etc. "Sport clubs which plan this kind of measure should clarify the support possibilities with the BSB and inquire whether or not the planned measures will really bring about the expected savings," recommends Wolfgang Elfner, sports facility construction consultant with the North Baden sports association (Tel. +49-721-180818, email W.Elfner(at)Badischer-Sportbund.de).

The BSB is organising a information event on the topic of "Savings potential from energy-efficient renovation and subvention possibilities", in Weinheim on October 13, 2012, entry free of charge.
