At RECS International we see our role as bringing order and structure to the certification of electricity. This is done by presenting truthful and factual information to the purchaser of electricity, the consumer, allowing them to make an educated and informed electricity purchase decision. The Guarantee of Origin (GOs) provide the tool for this information transfer via a reliable and transparent 'book-and-claim' system. However, we see a need for greater harmonisation and higher levels of trading to make the cost of the GO match the value of the electricity source. In the long run, we look forward to a pan-European market for renewable energy, backed-up by universally accepted GO certificates.
