Are you going to produce renewable energy? Then you can use the subsidy for Sustainable Energy Stimulation (SDE ++ subsidies). This subsidy stimulates the development of a sustainable energy supply in the Netherlands.
The SDE ++ subsidy is intended for companies and (non- profit) organisations who want to generate sustainable energy. Only the intended producer can apply for this subsidy. This means that you commit and operate the production installation yourself.
SDE ++ is the new form of SDE + in which reducing CO² emissions in a cost-effective way is central. This new scheme focuses not only on sustainable energy technologies, but also on CO2 reduction techniques.
The first application round for the SDE ++ is from 24 November to 17 December 2020. The budget that the government has opened for the SDE ++ subsidies is 5 billion. The benefit of the SDE ++ subsidy stops when the maximum available budget has been paid out. So apply for the SDE ++ subsidy as soon as possible.
The following categories are eligible for SDE ++ subsidy:
- Renewable electricity
- Renewable heat
- Renewable gas
- Low CO² heat
- Low-carbon production
The subsidy compensates for the price difference between the cost price of sustainable energy and the market price of ‘gray’ energy.
