On Wednesday 8 March 2023, Luxembourg's Ministry of Housing corrected an error concerning the link pertaining to the information on the temporary price subsidy for the supply of heat to households connected to a district heating network.
In order to help households following the exceptional increase in energy prices due to the international situation, the government introduced a state contribution measure to retroactively limit the price increase to residential customers connected to a district heating network. This aid will increase by 15% compared to the average price level of September 2022. This measure applies from 1 October 2022 to 31 December 2023.
