The Guarantee of Origin (GO) is a document confirming that the electricity comes from renewable energy sources (RES). It is used to confirm that this energy meets certain legal requirements and comes from a legally operating source. Guarantees of Origin are issued by governments or regulatory authorities, and their quantity corresponds to the amount of energy produced from RES. In Europe, Guarantees of Origin are defined by the European Directive 2009/28/EC, which aims to promote renewable energy sources.
Energy-intensive enterprises such as steel mills, power plants, or industrial facilities may be required to possess a certain amount of Guarantees of Origin depending on the amount of electricity they consume. In Europe, this requirement is regulated by the European Directive, which imposes an obligation on member states to achieve a specific share of energy from renewable sources in final energy consumption. Energy-intensive enterprises can purchase Guarantees of Origin to meet these requirements and avoid financial penalties. Possessing Guarantees of Origin also allows them to demonstrate that their activities comply with environmental regulations and promote renewable energy sources.
Companies that are not required to possess a specific quantity of Guarantees of Origin due to their energy consumption can also purchase them to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and the promotion of renewable energy sources. Possessing Guarantees of Origin can also serve as a marketing tool because consumers and investors are increasingly interested in the environmentally friendly and sustainable practices of businesses. Companies can leverage their possession of Guarantees of Origin to enhance their reputation and attract new customers or investors.
