Are you interested in gaining tax benefits for your company? With the Energy Investment Allowance (EIA) you pay less tax when you invest in CO2 reduction, energy-efficient technologies and sustainable energy. The average benefit from this scheme is 11%. And your investment lowers the energy bill. PNO Chemistry’s consultants can help you with your application for EIA.


The objective of EIA (in Dutch: Energie-investeringsaftrek) is to stimulate investments in energy saving business assets and in sustainable energy.


The EIA scheme has the following themes:

  • buildings
  • processes
  • means of transport
  • renewable energy
  • energy balancing
  • energy transition
  • energy advice, customised advice and CO2 emission reduction plan.


  • Entrepreneurs in the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten and the BES islands are eligible for this scheme.
  • The investment must be included in the Energy List of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy.
  • 45.5% of the investment costs can be deducted from the taxable profit (on top of the usual depreciation).
