Energy allowance for 2022

The College of Aldermen has decided to introduce an energy allowance for 2022, like the one allocated at national level.

Every resident of Luxembourg City who has been awarded the energy allowance granted by the government is eligible for this municipal energy allowance (proof must be provided to the City of Luxembourg in advance).

The amount of this energy allowance is equal to that paid by the State, and is allocated per household (see table below).

Energy allowance for 2023

The college of aldermen has decided to prolong the energy allowance scheme to 2023, and to increase it by 10% compared to the amounts applicable in 2022.

Accordingly, anyone residing in Luxembourg City who previously received the government energy allowance will be entitled to the municipal energy allowance in 2023, provided they can provide the City of Luxembourg with the relevant proof.

The energy allowance is paid as a single payment per household in the following amounts:
