If a company falls under the Activities Decree Environmental Management Act, then there are obligations in the field of energy conservation, the so-called energy conservation obligation or energy conservation mandate. The energy-saving measures that have been made mandatory are energy-saving measures with a payback period of less than 5 years.
But how are we going to achieve the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 49% in 2030 (compared to 1990)? The CO2 levy for companies has been introduced. The European and Dutch governments stimulate sustainability through various subsidy schemes. The payback period of the investment must then be at least 5 years, but no more than 25 years. The energy savings must demonstrably be the direct result of the use of the asset in which the investment has been made.
The payback period should be calculated as follows:
(NRG use per year x NRG price) old situation – (NRG use per year x NRG price) new situation)
The investment includes all costs that are necessary to put the asset into use. Financing costs are not included. Make use of the subsidy scheme for solar collectors and HX Air2Air Technology on dryers via SDE++, the tax schemes for investments and energy-saving measures – EIA \ MIA or VEKI.
