Effective date: 1 January 2022

What changes?

Are you an entrepreneur with a ship and do you use shore-based power? You may be eligible to pay less energy tax. An expected change in the definition of shore-based power (walstroom) means that ships using a direct connection ('directe lijn') may also use the low tariff. The government wants to promote the use of shore-based power instead of generator power.

For whom?

  • Entrepreneurs owning and/or operating ships

When?

The change is effective from 1 January 2022.
