Guarantees of Origin: navigating the new European rules to unlock renewable energy sourcing potential
When: Thursday, 3 October 2019, 9:00 - 10:30
Where: Esperance + Otter (130 participants)
The entire mechanism for renewables procurement in Europe is governed by Article 19 of the recast Renewable Energy Directive, which came into force in December 2018. The article takes significant steps to strengthen energy attribute tracking through the Guarantee of Origin in Europe, but its ultimate success will depend on how effectively EU Member States implement the new law. To assist this work, RECS International has produced detailed guidance for national governments which it will explain and discuss in this in-depth workshop aimed both at regulators and at those working with them to ensure effective and efficient renewables markets in Europe.
In this session we will to answer the following questions:
- How could article 19 of the recast Renewable Energy Directive impact markets and systems for GOs in the coming years and what impact will this have on PPAs?
- How does the new EU legislative framework for GOs differ from the one it is superseding – what are the key points for implementation at Member State level?
- How should Member States be implementing the new EU law on Article 19?
- Which EU Member States are leading the way in the use of GOs to support an accelerated and efficient energy transition?
