Recommendations REDII – Article 19 Guarantees of Origin

Recommendation sent to key policy makers and influencers in the EU

 

As the EU Institutions will be entering trialogue negotiations in 2018 we would like to:

  • Reiterate our support for Compromise Amendment 10 approved by the European Parliament ITRE Committee
  • Draw your attention to the use of the word shall in Article 19.8

Where an electricity supplier is required to prove the share or quantity of energy from renewable sources in its energy mix for the purposes of Article 3 of Directive 2009/72/EC, it shall do so by using guarantees of origin.”

In our opinion, it is crucial that this remains unchanged.
