Rotterdam launches subsidy scheme for smart energy networks

The municipality will offer a new subsidy scheme for the development of smart energy networks. With this subsidy scheme, Rotterdam wants to speed up the construction and roll-out of innovative energy systems (so-called Smart Energy Systems), which are necessary for the increasing demand for clean energy in the city and port. With the scheme, the municipality also stimulates new activities and innovations that fit in with the new economy.

“A smart and flexible energy system is an important precondition for the energy transition”
Alderman Arno Bonte

Alderman Arno Bonte of Sustainability expects a lot from the new scheme: "A smart and flexible energy system is an important precondition for the energy transition. That is why we challenge entrepreneurs with this subsidy scheme to come up with innovations that make the existing electricity network more intelligent and stable. "

Subsidies can be applied for from 1th Augustus until 1th October 2020.
