Use of renewable energy, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, is an obligation for businesses in certain countries. It is also desirable for many others who want to operate in a more sustainable way for ethical and/or marketing purposes.
Electricity and gas produced from wind, solar, hydro and biomass sources is classed as renewable energy. Because these are fed into the same grids as fossil fuel energy, use can only be distinguished and claimed via purchase of relevant Green Certificates.
Green Certificates may be traded among countries which are relevant to each certificate type.
