Pilots & small demonstrations

Tools for pilots and small-scale demonstrations


A budget of around €100 m is available for projects that qualify for GroenvermogenNL’s portfolio and are at TRL phase 6, 7 or 8. The DEI+: Hydrogen and Green Chemistry grant scheme opened in June 2022 for pilot or demonstration projects involving hydrogen technology or green chemistry. This grant scheme closed on 10 January 2023. 

The first two allocations, which totalled €18.4 m, were granted to Hollandia BV and HYGRO Energy BV in December 2022.

TRL 7 Demonstration of prototype in operational environment

TRL 8 Product/service is complete and operational but not yet at market launch stage

There will be an evaluation of the significance of the DEI scheme for GroenvermogenNL in January and February 2023. On the basis of that assessment and with various budget requests for projects in TRL 6 to 8, there will be made a decision as to whether, and if so, with what potential adjustments, the DEI scheme can be reopened to GroenvermogenNL. Alternatively, a different kind of, more appropriate, scheme may be considered. The aim is for the next tranche to be made available around summer 2023 through the publication of a scheme for this kind of projects.
