Take the subsidy check!


Do you want to develop sustainable products? The DEI+ subsidy provides funding for innovative pilot and demonstration projects. The subsidy focuses on reduction of CO2 emissions and development of sustainable energy sources. You can apply from March 15th, 2023 until August 31st, 2023.

Why DEI+?

DEI+ stands for "Demonstration energy and climate innovation". New concepts which have already been devloped and tested can receive funding through this subsidy. These types of projects oftentimes are hard to fund due to the technical and financial risks involved with the feasibility of the project. The DEI+ is the solution for such projects.


The DEI+ subsidy fits me like a glove. It subsidizes innovative technologies which reduce CO2 emissions. Companies must be able to not only develop a sustainable technology, but also present an excellent and convincing business case in order to qualify for DEI+.

My writing skills and business background allow me to write logical and legible project plans. Paired with your drive for innovation, this will lead to a succesful DEI+ application.

Let's create a sustainable success story together!
