Open Dutch Business on Energy and Air Conditioning Supply

Open Dutch Business on Energy and Air Conditioning Supply

The Netherlands is one of the most innovative countries in Europe, as the government offers many incentives for activities which can improve the quality of life and the environment. This also applies to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning supply industry in the Netherlands where several incentives are available.

Foreign investors can benefit from a modern infrastructure if they want to set up a business on electricity, gas and air conditioning supply in the Netherlands. They must also respect the legislation related to supplying such services. This legislation can be explained by our Dutch company formation consultants.

How to register a business for the supply of gas, electricity and air conditioning

There are no special requirements for those who want to offer gas, electricity and air conditioning supply services in low volumes, meaning catering to the needs of residential areas in the Netherlands. The limited liability company is one of the best choices in this case. Our consultants can help you register such type of entity.

Once the company is registered, the Electricity Act and the Gas Law must be complied with and the private company must contact the national transmission network supplier in order to connect to their supply lines and provide their services. Private gas and electricity supply companies must obtain the consent of national supplier in order to connect to the main gas and electricity lines. This is not the case of those offering air conditioning services.

Licenses for Dutch gas, electricity and air conditioning supply companies

The opening of a Dutch business for the supply of gas, electricity and air conditioning services implies obtaining a special license from the Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM).

We remind investors who want to open a business for the supply of gas, electricity and air conditioning in the Netherlands that the ACM and the Ministry for Economic Affairs has implemented various incentives for industry, one of the most important ones referring to the reinvestment of profits.
