FaStGO consultation

FASTGO invites experts in areas related to guarantees of origin to identify and overcome the challenges currently existing in the management of Guarantee of Origin systems.

If you are such an expert, then please read our paper on the topic and respond to our survey -  we welcome your advice.

The FASTGO project is considering how to overcome these challenges in order to improve the quality of our analysis and our proposals for how to improve the standard. If we have missed a challenge, please send us your analysis of it. We’ll take this into account and produce a balanced argument as required by our assignment from DG ENER.
