    Goals / Remit

    EnergyTag is a global, industry-lead non-profit initiative that seeks to define the world's first voluntary standard for Granular Energy Attribute Certificates (GCs) that enable 24/7 carbon-free energy choice for consumers. GCs are, in our view, a key tool for increasing consumer transparency for electricity origin disclosure and for creating a market signal for deep decarbonisation of the world's electricity grids.

    Main EU files targeted

    In line with our mission, EnergyTag wishes to ensure that Policy makers are aware of the advances we are working on in to bring more precise and transparent energy attribution mechanisms.

    In the EU perspective, EnergyTag is focused on the ongoing amendment to the Renewable Energy Directive ("Directive (EU) 2018/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources",

    And in particular the potential amendment of Article 19 "Guarantees of origin for energy from renewable sources" to facilitate electricity disclosure of more temporal granularity.

    While EnergyTag is still developing its final position on the precise proposed amendments to Article 19, in the interest of transparency we can provide some of our current thinking:

    In Article 19.2 the definition of 1 MWh size of the Guarantee of Origin is seen to be a potential blocking point for innovation and temporal granularity. Faciliating the issuance of Guarantees of origin of a small size could alleviate this concern and allow for more precise consumer disclosure.

    In Article 19.6 it will be important that the CEN standard (CEN - EN 16325) eventually be updated to standardise more granular / temporal Guarantees of Origin and to set out rules as required to standardise usage of the Guarantee of Origin for temporal and geographical matching of electricity production and consumption (including cross-border mechanisms as required)

    In Article 19.7, the fact that the "Time" (i.e in hours:minutes) is omitted from the Guarantee of Origin is a clear roadblock to consumer transparency. Time should be added as a mandatory data item on the Guarantee of Origin.

    EnergyTag is also focussing on the Commission's Hydrogen Delegated act for RFNBOs where we have engaged to commend the Commission's proposal for robust criteria requirements for electricity sourcing.
