Do you want to produce renewable (sustainable) hydrogen with an electrolyser? You can apply for the Subsidy scheme for large scale hydrogen production through an electrolyser (OWE). The subsidy helps cover the investment costs of your production chain and the hydrogen production itself.

What are the conditions for the OWE?

You can apply for the OWE subsidy if you:

  • will build a hydrogen production plant for a sustainable production of hydrogen throughout the production process
  • will use an electrolyser with a capacity of at least 0.5 megawatts
  • apply for the subsidy before you start using the hydrogen production plant and before you make any commitments (such as payments and orders)
  • are not dependent on a different subsidy scheme to start your project

View all conditions for the OWE (in Dutch) at the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland, RVO).

How to apply?

You can not apply for the OWE-subsidy at the moment. In 2024 a new application round will open. OWE 2024 has different conditions. You can find the list of changes for OWE 2024 at RVO (in Dutch).
