If you supply heat to consumers or to small businesses with a maximum connection of 100 Kilowatt, you must adhere to the Dutch Heat Act (Warmtewet).To do so, you have to:
- register as heat supplier (in Dutch) with the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM)
- enter an agreement with your clients
- comply with the maximum rates set by ACM
- find out whether you need a permit from ACM to supply heat
If you are involved in a disagreement, you may approach a Disputes Committee. All heat suppliers must be registered with such a Disputes Committee.
Reference values heating equipment
The Heating Reglation (based on the Heat Act) sets reference values for heat distribution equipment (in Dutch) in order to establish maximum prices.
