AANZET IN BRIEF

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).

GRANT BUDGET AND AMOUNTS

The budget for the 2022 application round is 25 million euros.

The grant comprises a contribution to the additional cost of an emission-free truck compared to a diesel truck. The grant amount depends on three factors: 1) the type of vehicle; 2) the purchase price; and 3) the type of organisation purchasing the truck.

For a zero-emission N2 rigid chassis truck weighing 4,250 kg or more:

  • large enterprises: the grant covers 12.5% of the purchase price (up to 17,800 euros)
  • medium-sized enterprises: the grant covers 19% of the purchase price (up to 26,800 euros)
  • small enterprises and non-profit organisations: the grant covers 25% of the purchase price (up to 35,700 euros)

For a zero-emission N3 rigid chassis truck weighing up to 18,000 kg:

  • large enterprises: the grant covers 15% of the purchase price (up to 43,600 euros)
  • medium-sized enterprises: the grant covers 21.5% of the purchase price (up to 63,700 euros)
  • small enterprises and non-profit organisations: the grant covers 28.5% of the purchase price (up to 84,000 euros)

For a zero-emission N3 rigid chassis truck weighing 18,000 kg or more:

  • large enterprises: the grant covers 16.9% of the purchase price (up to 56,700 euros)
  • medium-sized enterprises: the grant covers 24.3% of the purchase price (up to 81,500 euros)
  • small enterprises and non-profit organisations: the grant covers 31.7% of the purchase price (up to 106,300 euros)

For a zero-emission N3 semi-trailer:

  • large enterprises: the grant covers 20% of the purchase price (up to 72,700 euros)
  • medium-sized enterprises: the grant covers 28.5% of the purchase price (up to 102,300 euros)
  • small enterprises and non-profit organisations: the grant covers 37% of the purchase price (up to 131,900 euros)

 

TERMS OF ELIGIBILITY

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) that was agreed on or after 1 January 2022 (not before).
