Do you have a company in the Netherlands that faces higher electricity costs due to emission rights trading? You can request compensation for your high energy bill. The Indirect Emission Costs Subsidy Scheme (Emissions Trading Scheme, ETS) is intended to avoid unfair competition in respect of neighbouring countries. Higher electricity prices due to CO2 costs, do not apply there.

When do you qualify?

  • You are a manufacturer in the aluminium, steel, fertiliser, paper or plastics sector.
  • You are prepared to improve your company's energy efficiency. Therefore you participate in a long-term agreement on energy efficiency (MJA3/MEE, Meerjarenafspraken Energie-efficiency, in Dutch).
  • The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) has advised positively on the energy efficiency plan (EEP) you have drawn up for MJA3/MEE.
