SDE++ IN BRIEF

The Stimulating Sustainable Energy Production and Climate Transition (SDE++) subsidy is a subsidy from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). The SDE++ focuses on the large-scale rollout of techniques that produce renewable energy, and other techniques that reduce the emission of greenhouse gases (CO₂).

 Voor whom?

  • companies
  • (non-)profit institutions in industry, agriculture, electricity, and the built environment sectors

 For what?

The SDE++ is an operating subsidy. This means that you can receive the subsidy during the operating period of your project. Do you have installations for the production of renewable energy? Do you have installations whereby you reduce the emission of CO₂ or systems for the capture of CO₂? Then they can qualify for a SDE++ subsidy.

 Subsidy budget €5 billion

The total subsidy budget is €5 billion. The SDE++ compensates for the difference between the cost price of the sustainable energy or the CO₂ emissions to be reduced and the (possible) revenues. The subsidy is granted over a period of 12 or 15 years. How many years you receive a subsidy depends on the technology that you use. The amount of the subsidy depends on the technology used and the CO₂ reduction you ultimately achieve with it. The maximum subsidy intensity that you can claim with an SDE++ technology is €300 per tonne of CO₂ reduction.

  • Phase 1 – For projects with a subsidy intensity of up to €60 per 1,000 kg of CO2.
  • Phase 2 – For projects with a subsidy intensity of up to €80 per 1,000 kg of CO2.
  • Phase 3 – For projects with a subsidy intensity of up to €115 per 1,000 kg of CO2.
  • Phase 4 – For projects with a subsidy intensity of up to €300 per 1,000 kg of CO2

Criteria

Do you want to be eligible for the SDE++? Then you must meet a number of general conditions:

  • The subsidy is available to Dutch companies.
  • The subsidy is intended only for targeted producers.
  • You can submit one application per category.
  • You need to provide a strong feasibility study.
  • Usually, one or more permits are required for the production installation.
  • The amount of subsidy you apply for (the so-called phase amount) may vary.

PURPOSE OF THE SUBSIDY

The SDE++ is a subsidy for the deployment of techniques for generating renewable energy and other CO2-reducing techniques. In this way, the government wants to ensure that energy transition in the Netherlands remains feasible and affordable.

Phased opening

The opening round of the SDE++ has 4 phases. During the first phase, you can only apply for a subsidy for projects with a subsidy requirement up to a certain subsidy amount/tonne of CO₂. During the following phases, this maximum subsidy amount/tonne of CO₂ is gradually increased. You can also submit projects with a lower subsidy requirement than the set maximum for the relevant technology. In this way, market parties are encouraged to submit projects at a lower price and thus have a greater chance of receiving subsidies.

Opening round SDE++ 2021 Phase limits € / tonne CO₂
Phase 1: 5 October to 11 October 2021, 5 p.m. 60
Phase 2: 11 October to 25 October 2021, 5 p.m. 80
Phase 3: 25 October to 8 November 2021, 5 p.m. 115
Phase 4: 8 November to 11 November 2021, 5 p.m. 300

At EGEN, I work on energy saving in industry and large-scale renewable energy projects. I talk to clients about energy and sustainability and come up with practical opportunities from the legislative and regulatory perspective. In this way, I contribute to the development of projects which have a major impact.
