More subsidies available for energy innovation

Eric Wiebes, the Dutch minister of economic affairs and climate policy, has begun the planned expansion of subsidies for public-private R&D into sustainable energy and emissions reduction.

For 2019, €38 million will be available under an existing subsidy scheme for public-private R&D aimed at preparing sustainable technologies such as offshore wind, urban energy and the bio-based economy for the market, Wiebes said in a statement.

This includes a new feature of this fund: €11.5m earmarked for energy studies in industry, which will come from the climate envelope. This is the name given to an extra €300 million in annual funding agreed by the government for the next few years to support the transition to sustainable energy and a circular economy.
