A condition is that there is an energy saving in the investment, but this saving does not have to represent the largest share in the total savings. The total of all savings, including raw materials such as paper and water, are included in the calculation of the energy saving / CO2 reduction.
As a result, the grant is more interesting for many companies than the EIA, because it may only include the portion of the energy savings. In addition to energy savings, climate investments often also involve material savings.
The minimum grant amount to be paid out is € 125,000 (the maximum € 3 million). The grant is calculated on the additional costs of the investment compared to a less environmentally friendly alternative. In all cases, it must therefore involve substantial investments.
This year, Vindsubsidies has used VEKI for several large climate investments by customers. Printing company Campo Coprint, for example, received the grant for the investment in two digital printing presses with which 'gas-free' printing can be done and large quantities of process water and paper are saved.
Another customer, Ten Cate Grass, is investing in a machine to make their extrusion process more sustainable. Also within this investment not only energy is saved, but also material.
A third example is Wihabo printing company, which is in the process of transitioning to fully digital printing. Two climate-unfriendly printing systems with inefficient technology have been replaced by 1 resource-efficient and energy-friendly printing machine. Here too, a calculation of the energy and raw material savings has led to the allocation of a considerable VEKI grant.
