Intermediate report on SDE+ spring 2019
In a letter to the House of Representatives on the opening of the SDE+ autumn 2019 round, Minister Wiebes of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy provided an intermediate report of the SDE+ spring 2019 subsidy application round as per 1 July 2019. Of the 42 wind energy project related applications, 1 was declined, 28 were granted and 13 are still processed.
The SDE+ is an operating grant, introduced by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy to encourage the production of renewable energy in the Netherlands. As of 2020, the SDE+ scheme will be replaced by the SDE++ scheme. The SDE++ will, in addition to renewable energy, also include other CO2-reducing techniques. The Dutch government has the ambition to realise a 49% reduction in CO₂-emissions by 2030.
