DEI+ IN BRIEF

DEI+ is a subsidy 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 subsidy for pilot and demonstration projects from the Demonstration of Energy and Climate Innovation subsidy (DEI+) scheme.

 For whom?

Companies

PURPOSE OF THE SUBSIDY

The DEI subsidy is an investment subsidy for Dutch innovations in the field of sustainable energy and energy saving. The purpose of this subsidy 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 subsidy project ends.
