Sustainable construction is more than a trend; it is the future. The government provides fiscal incentives for both large-scale developments and replacement investments to promote the sustainability of real estate.
Building a sustainable building
Building a sustainable building can be achieved in various ways, both for new construction and renovation. Energy-saving measures or improvements to the energy label can result in a substantial EIA subsidy of approximately 11% of the investment costs. If you create a circular building with a low MPG score or certify a building with a BREEAM or GPR certificate, you may qualify for an additional MIA subsidy of 7%, 9%, or 11% of the construction costs, respectively.
Solar panels reduce your energy costs
To reduce energy costs, solar panels are often used. The government encourages this with a subsidy consisting of an operating contribution. This SDE++ subsidy is intended for large-scale installations starting from 300 solar panels and for high-consumption users (larger than a 380A connection, which in practice means from a 3120A connection).
Lower financing costs in addition to subsidies
If you create an energy-neutral building or significantly improve energy performance, the government provides a so-called ‘green declaration.’ With this green declaration, many banks offer an interest rate reduction of up to 0.5% for a 10-year term.
Heating Homes Sustainably
If you plan to provide new or existing homes with sustainable heat generation, the government provides support for the purchase of a solar water heater (up to 200m2), heat pump (up to 70kW), or additional insulation measures. This leads to energy savings and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
European Subsidy Opportunities
Does your project contribute to promoting research and innovation in CO2-saving technologies? Does it involve the use of sustainable energy generation? Does it lead to a reduction in energy use in the built environment? Or does it promote investments, innovation, and knowledge development in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)? Then there are also EU subsidy opportunities, especially if you collaborate with SMEs or multiple (inter)national players.
