As a company, do you invest in energy-efficient techniques and sustainable energy? Then use the Energy Investment Allowance (EIA) scheme. For your investment you can then deduct 45% of the investment costs from the taxable profit. There is a budget of € 147 million for 2020.

The scheme gives you an average advantage of 11%. In addition to the EIA, you also have the usual depreciation for your energy investments and a lower energy bill.

Energy list

The Energy List is an important part of the EIA scheme. It is important that your investment complies with the description under one of the codes on the Energy List.

Check this with the help of the brochure (pdf) or with the digital search tool with which you can quickly search by code, technology and industry or other keyword, for example. The Energy List contains:

  • clearly defined investments (specific code), and
  • tailor-made investments that yield significant energy savings and meet a savings standard (generic code).

More general information about the Energy List can be found here.
