Energy Certifications

Delivering real business benefits across key segments

If you value energy with defined qualities, sustainability and environment friendliness then our energy certification services are your ideal choice. We provide support, assessment or certification services. Below you can find more information about our most important certifications: Ecopower Certification and Proof of Origin.

WHAT IS ECOPOWER CERTIFICATION?

This service targets suppliers of ecopower that supply their customers with energy guaranteed from renewable sources and/or green energy.
In these cases, we verify compliance with the requirements of the lists of criteria and further statements of the supplier from the source of energy (generation/production) to its delivery (supply to the end-consumer). Also, we offer certifications of trading of renewable energies.

  

TÜV SÜD OFFERS THE FOLLOWING STANDARDS FOR ECOPOWER CERTIFICATION

  • Product EE01: Certification of electricity products from renewable energy sources with support component

    Energy carriers: 100% of the energy supplied is from renewable sources. At least 30% of the amount of energy supplied is generated in new power stations. Price surcharges are used for building new renewable sources of energy.
  • Product EE02: Certification of electricity products from renewable energy sources with simultaneous generation and supply

    Energy carriers: 100% renewable sources of energy. Simultaneous generation and consumption in quarter-hour metering. Price surcharges are used to expand renewable sources of energy.
  • Trading EE: Trading of Renewable Energies

    Certification of trading of energy from renewable sources including green hydrogen and of the offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions of the supply of electricity and natural gas. The certification of the Greenbook-Managements gives certainty to the buyer that a reliable and traceable accounting system is used.

 

WHAT IS PROOF OF ORIGIN?

Not all producers of electricity from renewable sources or green electricity offer their electric power as a special green electricity product. Many producers simply feed their electricity into the grid, where it becomes part of the normal power mix. Nevertheless, you still aim to demonstrate to your business and trading partners that you produce and supply green electricity.

In this case, we verify the sources of electricity production and certify that you produce electricity from renewable sources or green electricity with the proof of origin. Our certification/proof of origin is recognised in numerous countries. Similarly, we also issue proof of origin as defined in the revised Energy from Renewable Sources Act.

   

TÜV SÜD OFFERS THE FOLLOWING STANDARDS FOR PROOF OF ORIGIN

  • Generation EE: Certification of the generation of electricity from renewable sources
  • Generation UE: Certification relating to the generation of electricity from eco-friendly energies (100% combined heat and power)
