MAP advisory services and subsidies

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Energy distribution companies (gas and electricity) are grouped together as EnergieNed. This organisation executes the Milieu Actie Plan (MAP), Environmental Action Plans. MAP started in 1991 and was revised several times resulting in MAP I, MAP II and MAP 2000, the most recent revision. The main focus is on addressing the energy use of small-scale end-users through advisory services and subsidy schemes for energy conservation. MAP is financed by a MAP-levy of a maximum of 2% of the energy tariff. The specific target groups are households, public and office buildings and industry. On the production side, there are three main areas, heat market (CHP and heat distribution), new technologies and renewable energy.
