Obligations - Energy for Transport

Companies that deliver fuels to the transport sector in the Netherlands are subject to obligations based on the Energy for Transport legislation. They comply with their obligations using the Energy for Transport Registry (REV: Register Energie voor Vervoer).

Please note: the information available on this page is only relevant for 2018-2021.

The Energy for Transport compliance system makes it mandatory for companies  to register their duty-paid fuel deliveries in the REV annually. Their annual obligation and their obligation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (for the calendar year 2020) is determined based on this.

This page and the subsequent more detailed pages set out exactly what these obligations mean and how companies  must comply with them.

Companies that deliver less than 500,000 litres, kilograms and/or normal cubic metres (Nm3) to the transport sector on an annual basis are exempt from the obligations.
