Guarantees of origin

Does your company want to purchase renewable energy directly from one of our power plants?

Guarantees of origin (called GOs or GoOs) certify that a quantity of power is indeed generated from renewable energy sources. In 2009, the European Union made it compulsory to use GOs to track and disclose renewable energy with the aim of increasing awareness, transparency and growth of renewables. GOs enable energy consumers to certify the provenance of the power consumption by tracing it back to the renewable source.
