Purchase Grant for Zero-Emission Trucks (AanZET)

AanZET (Aanschafsubsidie Zero-Emissie Trucks – Purchase Grant for Zero-Emission Trucks) is a Dutch grant scheme that makes it more attractive for entrepreneurs to invest in clean trucks. The grant reduces the difference in price between a ‘traditional’ diesel truck and a clean zero-emission truck.

The AanZET grant is suitable for Dutch enterprises that wish to purchase an N2 or N3 truck. The grant aims to provide an incentive to choose clean emission-free trucks with battery-electric or hydrogen-electric propulsion instead of a ‘standard diesel truck’. You can apply for a grant to purchase one or more trucks (up to 20).

Meet the requirements

AanZET conditions

This grant scheme is subject to various terms of eligibility, including the following:

The grant must be for the purpose of purchasing a type N2 or N3 truck (as described above). The truck must be fully emission-free and run only on an electric motor.

The truck must be purchased new. The truck may be bought outright or based on a financial lease. In the case of the latter, the grant must be requested by the lessee (the company that will be offering the financial lease on the truck). For operational leasing, only the leasing company/lessor can apply for the AanZET grant.

The grant recipient must retain ownership of the truck for at least four years (this will be checked based on the vehicle registration). The grant will be calculated based on the purchase price (excluding VAT) as included in the sale or financial lease contract.

No firm commitments must have been entered into at the time of the grant application. There must be a provisional purchase or financial lease agreement (without irrevocable obligations).

Why this grant?

Purpose of AanZET

The AanZET grant aims to provide an incentive to choose clean emission-free trucks with battery-electric or hydrogen-electric propulsion instead of a ‘standard diesel truck’.

“I’m a part of the Transportation team, which mainly focusses on the transition to smart and sustainable mobility for transportation of people and goods. The best thing about this sector is that it is connected to the energy transition, because ships, planes and trucks are moving towards other/cleaner fuels.”
