Environmental Protection Act, Recognised list of energy saving measures (EML)

Last updated: 27 September 2019

As a result of the Agreement on Energy for sustainable growth a set of Recognised Lists of Measures (in Dutch, EML Erkende Maatregelenlijst) has been added to the Activities Decree under the Environmantal Protection Act. This should further enhance identification of energy saving measures by companies that have a pay back time of less than 5 years. The parties to the energy agreement have facilitated this identification of measures with such lists described per sector.


In 2015 the first batch of Recognised Lists of Measures was published, followed by others later on.
