Germany and France are formal applicants of the AIB
The Association of Issuing Bodies (AIB), the owners of the European Energy Certificate Standard (EECS), have formal applications from the German and French GO issuing bodies. Germany has applied for access and use of the AIB hub whereas France has applied for full AIB membership.
Germany and France represent 18.6% and 17.2% of EU electricity production respectively. The addition of Germany and France to the EECS system would increase the total electricity covered by the EECS certification system from 44% to 65%. It is estimated by the RECS International secretariat that by the end of 2015 92% of all European renewable electricity production will be within locations where the EECS certification system is implemented for GO certification.
