Achieving net zero is a major consideration for all parts of the economy. Energy producers and traders, utilities, energy intensive consumers, retail energy customers and investors are considering means to mitigate exposure to fossil fuels and carbon-intensive energy.

Energy attributes certificates and associated schemes — including guarantees of origin in Europe, national renewable energy certificates schemes and globally traded international renewable energy certificates — enable the documentation of renewable energy supply through the value chain. The certificate acts as a premium to the energy cost, guaranteeing supply originates from a desired source. Argus provides robust prices for the developing certificates markets, bringing transparency to the trade in green energy premiums.

Energy and Guarantees of Origin

Energy and Guarantees of Origin

Certificates generated by renewable producers mean that consumers can support existing power and gas portfolios with renewable technology-backed certificates.

A unit of energy within the grid can now be matched to a certificate, identifying the technology or feedstock, time and location in which a unit of energy was produced.
