We offer a one-stop shop for trading of Swedish and Norwegian electricity certificates.
About Swedish and Norwegian Electricity Certificates
Electricity certificates are awarded to producers of renewable energy by the Swedish Energy Agency and the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate. Buyers of energy are required to possess a certain amount of electricity certificates in relation to their sales or consumption of energy. A demand is thus created where renewable energy producers can sell their electricity certificates for increased revenue. Electricity certificates are annulled yearly, and new certificates are awarded based on reported production of renewable energy.
