ISPT and NL-GUTS help accomplish your Early Adopter Project (EAP2016)


The Early Adopter Projects ( EAP ) programme of Topsector Energy supports energy saving technologies. Within these short term projects, SMEs as technology suppliers, will have the opportunity to test their innovative technology with at least two end-users. Another possible project consortium could exist of a research organization acting as technology owner (IP provider) together with an SME that wishes to market this technology.

ISPT and NL-GUTS can help you reach the criteria, support in setting up the EAP proposal and building the right consortium. During the project we assist with contracts, program administration, project tools and -environment and dissemination to our networks. We foster innovation between technology suppliers and at least two end-users by giving support and making available additional funding of € 7.500 on top of the funding of Topsector Energy for energy efficient innovations.

All Early Adopter Projects that applied for funding at Topsector Energy in 2015 with the support of ISPT and NL-GUTS were granted.  

We invite you to launch your project idea in the field of energy-efficiency together with us. This idea will be distributed and judged within the ISPT and NL-GUTS community. ISPT facilitates the project coordinator/technology provider throughout the entire process from project idea up to delivering the official end report.

You can find a project idea template here. Please send the filled out form to before 24 March 2016. Feel free to contact us for extensive information on +31 33 7009796 and ask for Anne van der Zwaan.
