The subsidy scheme is made for creators of innovative developments for sustainable energy, such as non-fossil energy storage and geothermal energy. If you take risks, integrity, the interest of society and security into consideration, then you are most likely to be eligible for this subsidy.

Who can apply for this subsidy?

The aim of this subsidy are new developments for the safe, robust and cost efficient attainment of geothermal energy. Not to forget, if you’re developing a non-fossil energy storage, then you’re also eligible for this subsidy scheme. Are you working on new, affordable products for sustainable energy from underground, or do you store sustainable energy underground? If that is the case, then we’d want to know more!
