Sustainable or renewable energy
Sustainable or renewable energy is energy from natural sources such as biomass, sun, wind, soil and water. These sources supply electricity, (bio) gas, heat, or a combination. By using sustainable energy, we will use less energy from fossil sources.
Sustainability in the Netherlands
Fossil fuels, especially natural gas, are becoming less available in the Netherlands. The Dutch government stimulates switching to sustainable energy step by step. By 2030, we aim to generate 70% of all electricity sustainably. In 2050, almost all the energy supplies must be sustainable and CO2 neutral. We support this transition.
Generating sustainable energy
How do you arrange permits and financing? How do you set up a bioenergy installation? Are you interested in a wind turbine, or would you prefer to buy or lease land for wind turbines? We offer practical, sustainable energy solutions.
Energy and environmental innovations
Energy research and innovation are 2 essential aspects of the energy transition. We support your investments with knowledge, advice, financial arrangements, and networks. Discover the possibilities. See our subsidies and programmes tool for funding options.
Offshore wind energy
The Dutch North Sea has room for wind farms. In some areas, wind farms are in operation. In other places, companies can build new ones. We organise the tender procedure for new wind farm permits. Find out more.
The Netherlands Programme Sustainable Biomass (NPSB) supported around 40 pioneering biomass projects for several years. We expect the demand for biomass resources to increase for both local and export markets. Find out more.
Energy efficiency notification obligation
Does your organisation use more than 50,000 kWh of electricity or 25,000 m3 of natural gas per year? If this is the case, you may need to take energy-saving measures. Find out more.
National Inventory Entity
Under the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol, organisations must report greenhouse gas emissions. They must also report on steps to carry out the agreements. Find out more.
