DEI+ IN BRIEF

DEI+ is a grant for companies who reduce the energy used in their production process. Do you have an innovative technique which will enable you to reduce CO2 emissions? Or do you want to invest in renewable energy sources, such as wind energy, solar energy, and geothermal energy? Then you can apply for a grant for pilot and demonstration projects from the Demonstration of Energy and Climate Innovation (DEI+) grant scheme.

 For whom?

Companies

 For what?

Projects which reduce CO2 emissions for sustainability and energy innovation, such as:

  • Pilot projects
  • Demonstration projects

Grant amount max. €15 million per project

  • The application rounds of 2022 differ per grant theme;
  • The grants will be distributed in order of receipt of applications (as long as there is a budget);
  • The grant percentage is usually between 25 and 50% of project costs.
  • The grant can be as much as 15 million euros per project.
  • Projects must have a maximum duration of 4 years.

 Themes within DEI+

  • Hydrogen and green chemical industry
  • Natural gas-free homes, neighbourhoods, and buildings.
  • Circular Economy.
  • CCUS (Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage)
  • Energy efficiency
  • Renewable energy including spatial integration
  • Flexibility of the energy system including hydrogen (pilots only)
  • Local infrastructure
  • Other CO2-reducing measures in the industry or electricity sector
Criteria
  • For Dutch companies.
  • The projects must be innovative.
  • In pilot projects, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) considers international state of the art.
  • For demonstration projects, you are allowed to have received a grant for the same type of installation twice before from the Topsector Energy schemes.

PURPOSE OF THE GRANT

The DEI+ grant is an investment grant for Dutch innovations in the field of sustainable energy and energy saving. The purpose of this grant is twofold:

  • Stimulating the sustainability of the Netherlands.
  • Stimulating the economy – so that the step up to the international market is easier for Dutch companies.

Type of projects

EGEN has worked on several projects in the field of renewable energy, including:

  • Pilot project: in a pilot project, you test a new technology and improve it in a test setup that simulates how it would work in practice.
  • Demonstration project: in a demonstration project, you invest in a production installation that will remain in use after the grant project ends.
