What do guarantees of origin offer you?

By opting for green power, you make a positive contribution to climate protection as well as to your company's CO2 balance and image. Guarantees of origin give you the certainty that defined quantities of electricity come from renewable sources - including proof of the type and location of green electricity generation. Double marketing is excluded.

Vattenfall develops solutions tailored to your needs: We supply you with both green power including the certificate of origin and certificates of origin independent of the electricity supply, which you can use for labeling. Here, we draw on our own extensive renewable energy portfolio as well as our Europe-wide market access and framework agreements with renowned suppliers.


Fixer Fahrplan - wie funktionierts

How does it work?

We procure the guarantees of origin according to your requirements such as country of origin, technology (e.g. hydropower, wind, solar) and age of the plants. In the case of special requirements for the guarantees of origin, we carry out qualified market inquiries for you.

A fixed price is agreed for the green power and/or guarantees of origin - up to five years in advance, depending on market liquidity and product specifications. You only pay when you have received the green electricity and/or the guarantees of origin.

We guarantee reliable processing: delivery takes place via the established and secure system of the Federal Environment Agency (UBA).
