The demonstration of energy and climate innovations (DEI+) is a funding opportunity available to companies in the Netherlands that aim to decrease their energy consumption during production. If your company has a novel approach to lowering CO2 emissions or intends to invest in renewable energy sources like wind, solar or geothermal energy, you are eligible to apply for a grant for either a pilot or demonstration project through the DEI+ program. We can assist you in preparing and submitting your grant application if you are interested.


  • The DEI+ grant scheme focuses on several themes, including
  • Hydrogen and green chemical industry
  • Gasification of waste streams
  • Natural gas-free homes, neighbourhoods, and buildings
  • Circular economy (waste recycling, reuse, biobased raw materials)
  • Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS)
  • Energy efficiency
  • Renewable energy (including spatial integration)
  • Flexibility of the energy system (including hydrogen)
  • Local infrastructure
  • Other CO2-reducing measures in the industry or electricity sector.



DEI+ (in Dutch: Demonstratie Energie- en Klimaatinnovatie) is a Dutch investment grant aimed at promoting sustainable energy and energy efficiency innovations. Its primary objective is to encourage economic growth and sustainability in the country by supporting companies in developing and implementing innovative products, processes, and services.



DEI+ is available for Dutch companies, as well as businesses operating in Bonaire, St. Eustatius, and Saba. The grant usually covers between 25% and 50% of eligible project costs. Several exceptions to this are possible, such as an additional mark-up of 5% or 10% for costs incurred by medium or small companies (SME), or an increase of up to 80% for research organisations. The maximum amount granted is 25 million euro for pilot projects and 30 million euro for demonstration projects.
