Title Guarantees of Origin related to energy - Guarantees of Origin for Electricity
Project Number 23757
Abstract/Scope This European Standard specifies requirements for Guarantees of Origin of electricity from all energy sources. This standard will establish the relevant terminology and definitions, requirements for registration, issuing, transferring and Cancellation in line with the Directives RES, Cogeneration and electricity market. This standard will also cover measuring methods and auditing procedures. These Guarantees of Origin may be traded and/or used for Disclosure/Labelling. The content of this standard can, after necessary modifications, for example be applied to heating, cooling, and gas (including biogas). These modifications are not part of this standard. This European Standard will not establish any sustainability criteria, this work is done elsewhere. This standard is suitable for certification purposes.
