REGATRACE (REnewable GAs TRAde Centre in Europe) is a H2020 project which aims to create an efficient system for issuing and trading biomethane/renewable gases Guarantees of Origin (GoO). This will strongly contribute to the uptake of the European common biomethane market.
The REGATRACE project runs from June 2019 till November 2022.
AIB is leading a work package on the integration of guarantees of origin for multiple energy carriers.
The REGATRACE project runs from June 2019 till November 2022. And AIB is leading a work package on the integration of guarantees of origin for multiple energy carriers.
In this work package, the project published a report on “Guidelines for the verification of cross-sectoral concepts”. This maps verification areas in relation with tracking of energy carrier conversion between electricity, hydrogen, biomethane, bio-LNG and biomethanol along the value chain. In March 2021 a report will be published on the comparison between the certification systems of AIB, ERGaR and CertifHy. Its results will be presented in a public webinar.
Further, an exercise is ongoing to map the practical challenges related to energy carrier conversion. A closed workshop on 11th March 2021 with issuing bodies and registry operators aims to synchronise understanding of technical challenges and collect participant feedback.
Together these form inputs for upcoming reports on harmonised rules for energy carrier conversion (by October 2021) and a design study on a coordinated conversion process (by April 2022).
This project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation under Grant Agreement no. 857796
