Interested in joining AIB?
If you are an issuing body for GOs or voluntary certificates and wish to join, then read more here.See a generic presentation about AIB and GOs or
take a look at our Youtube channel, which contains videos about the AIB and guarantees of origin.
All these documents, presentations and information are developed by the AIB, its members and market parties.
AIB welcomes issuing bodies administering energy certificates for electricity, gas, hydrogen etc.
The AIB facilitates a forum for issuing bodies who administer a reliable system of internationally tradeable energy certificates. AIB now also facilitates independent decision making by gas issuing bodies on gas related aspects.
The European Energy Certificate System (EECS) provides a basic ruleset for energy certificates for all energy carriers and several purposes. The Electricity Scheme has been operational for almost two decades, the EECS Gas Scheme has been added in November 2019. The EECS Rules have also adopted rules that facilitate GO issuing following energy carrier conversion.
AIB operates a Hub for international trade of energy certificates, avoiding bilateral connections between registries. 600 TWh of electricity guarantees of origin were transferred internationally in 2019.
The EECS Gas GO Scheme fully facilitates guarantees of origin for gaseous energy carriers (including hydrogen) under article 19 of the Renewable Energy Directive 2018/2001, and their effective cross border transfer. It also facilitates voluntary data fields on the gas certificate, which can be used for other purposes (sustainability criteria, green house gas emission data, assessment reports certifying their value, etc). This is a building block towards also art. 25-31 of REDII certification and can be further developed.
AIB encourages and facilitates (aspiring) gas issuing bodies to join the EECS Gas Scheme Group and share experience, establish practice and further refine the rules.
