|Renewable Energy Description:|
The Sustainable Energy Production Incentive Decision initiates a new system of feed-in premium allocation targeting renewable electricity and renewable gas projects. Support to renewable heat projects will follow, starting from 2012.
The SDE +, replacing the SDE scheme, falls under the Economic Affairs Grants Act and is implemented by the Agentschap NL.
The SDE + provides a feed-in premium (FIP) subsidy that covers the difference between wholesale market prices of electricity and cost price of electricity from renewable sources. FIP contracts are signed for 15 years.
The SDE+ programme has years set budget and distributed on a 'first-come, first-served' basis prioritising low-cost technologies through a phase in process. All categories compete for the same budget in order that only lower-cost technologies receive substantial subsidy.
On a yearly basis government of Netherlands allocates budget for SDE+ programme. There is a single budget for all eligible technologies participating in the programme split in allocation rounds. Each round has previously given a maximum price. However, there is also a 'free category' in each roundin which technologies of higher cost range can apply for a lower subsidy level as they will be more likely to obtain some support, however, the base amount used in the calculation of the subsidy will be limited to the threshold of the category they apply to. This is intended to drive cost-reduction among the more expensive technology brackets and promote "technology leaders" with a more efficient cost-model.
