Sustainable financing through garantees of origin


The label of origin gives the electricity users information about how the electricity was produced. In order for the electricity retailers to be able to guarantee the origin of the electricity sold, they must purchase guarantees of origin. The origin labeling system has received some criticism; As the electricity flows freely in the electricity networks, the electricity retailrr cannot guarantee that the consumer will receive just the electricity purchased under the guarantee.

What role does the guarantee of origin have in the transition? Which rules should apply in Sweden regarding communication of renewable electricity? How can you market yourself as an environmentally friendly player? Need cooperation between authorities and policies to be strengthened so as not to hamper climate-enhancing initiatives? And not least – how to promote trade in guarantees of origin in the future?
