English translation:windows qualifying for subsidies under the KfW subsidy programme
Explanation:
KfW - Reconstruction Loan Company (Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau), a publicly owned bank in German and the main subject of this report

Second, KfW provides repayable loans on favourable terms, or performance-linked investment subsidies, rather than unconditional subsidies or tax concessions, as a more reliable and sustainable funding mechanism.

The German Federal government has three special subsidy programmes for existing buildings in addition to the programme it channels through KfW
