APPLICATION ROUNDS

The HER+ application round of 2022 is open from 1 April until 5:00 pm on 4 October.

    HER+ in brief

    HER+ (Hernieuwbare Energietransitie – Renewable Energy Transition) is a Dutch grant scheme for innovative projects that lead to cost-effective CO2 reductions by 2030. HER+ projects must focus primarily on renewable energy production through technologies such as wind energy, solar PV and renewable gas. Projects involving other CO2 reducing techniques – e.g. CCS, H2 production and electric boilers – are eligible too.

    HER+ projects must lead to savings on future expenditure on sustainable energy grants or to cost benefits that are greater than the HER+ grant.
