We track the green quality of energy!
Registries allow for the secured and transparent tracking of ownership of instruments and have become a key component for markets.
Intro on the Registries Activities
EEX Group enables green economy by providing versatile, easy-to-use solutions for energy certificate registries.
On a general level, energy certification means that the production attributes of electricity production (such as energy source and CO2 emissions) can be explicitly tracked from production to consumption. Energy certification opens up an entirely new market for the origin of energy separately from the physical energy itself.
Over the past years, registries have then become a key component for markets as they allow for the secured and transparent tracking of ownership of complex instruments such as Guarantees of Origin, energy saving certificates or emission allowances.

Looking at the other end of the lifecycle of a GO, almost one in four (23%) of European GOs was cancelled in our system to match the related consumption of renewable electricity:
