Guarantees of Origin
ECOHZ delivers Guarantees of Origin which prove that energy comes from renewable sources. ECOHZ is the market leader in Europe, fully dedicated to delivering proof of renewable energy sources.This cartoon is how WWF Norway illustrates the system.
Guarantees of Origin are an effective and recognised way of reaching emission targets and improving sustainability. The system was established in connection with the EU renewable directives - most recently from 2009 - and adopted by most European countries to increase the proportion of energy being produced from renewable sources.
By buying Guarantees of Origin, customers secure evidence they are consuming renewable energy. Not only do the guarantees represent the only way to prove renewable energy consumption, they also deliver evidence of additional commitment to changing energy behaviour.
The only sure way to be pure
Companies buying Guarantees of Origin help increase the market momentum for renewable power. The electricity grids source energy generated in a variety of ways, including nuclear and carbon-intensive generation. There is currently a finite volume of renewable energy available. As long as a company sources electricity from the utilities, the guarantees represent the only method to be sure that they are consuming energy derived from renewable sources with negligible CO2 emissions.
Origin is the only way to categorise the source of electricity. And Guarantees of Origin are the only way to be sure that it comes from renewable sources such as wind, solar, biomass or hydro. ECOHZ offers a wide choice of Guarantees of Origins - because it matters.
