Side event

When: Thursday, 3 October 2019, 9:00 - 10:30
Where: Esperance + Otter (130 participants)

Session description

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.
