The Energy Innovation NL provides support for innovations by annually allocating €100 million in subsidies to projects and research in the field of energy innovation. The Energy Innovation NL assists in finding the right project consortia (applicants) and organizes networking and knowledge events related to applying for these project subsidies.

Some smaller subsidy schemes are awarded by the Energy Innovation NL itself. TKI advisors can answer questions and provide guidance for potential applications for these types of subsidies. The schemes include:

It's important to note that subsidies only cover a portion of the costs of a research project. Each subsidy scheme requires a "matching" or "co-financing" contribution. Not everyone can finance this on their own, so additional funding from lenders or venture capital providers may be necessary.

Loans and Venture Capital

Startups, scale-ups, and mature SMEs often face challenges in finding the right co-financing and navigating the "Valley of Death" in product development. The diagram below showcases various providers/financiers who can offer loans and/or venture capital. Different types of investors or financiers can assist at each stage of innovation.

The Financing Desk (Financieringsloket) supports startups, scale-ups, and mature SMEs in finding private financing. Learn more about the Financing Desk for upcoming events and one-on-one advisory services.
