The International Clean Energy Partnership (ICEP) focuses on promoting trade. It helps Dutch businesses that offer renewable energy products and services abroad. The programme organises trade missions and events to boost the Netherlands' position in the renewable energy sector.
The Netherlands has a good reputation in the international clean energy sector. Many companies are active in that sector. This includes major market players, many SMEs and start-ups. ICEP focuses on smaller businesses that are looking for:
- Public-private partnerships;
- Flexible, demand-oriented support;
- Networking activities.
Renewable energy trade promotion activities
To promote trade, ICEP organises a range of activities, open to entrepreneurs in the renewable energy sector. Examples include:
- Trade missions;
- Joint participation in trade fairs;
- Matchmaking events; and
- Government-to-government events.
ICEP also develops standard communication tools for each sector. This helps Dutch companies get international recognition as the right partners in the field of sustainable energy. An example of this is Wind & Water Works, an interactive knowledge platform that promotes the market position of the Dutch offshore wind energy sector.
