REDII Article 19 Implementation Guidance document

Article 19 of the recast EU Renewable Energy Directive (EU 2018/2019), which entered into force at the end of 2018, both expands the use of Guarantees of Origin in the EU and strengthens the systems that support their use. RECS International has created a detailed analysis of the Article, setting out its headline priorities for the article’s implementation by EU Member States, and providing detailed guidance on how these priorities can be achieved. 

The document also provides a comparison, with line by line commentary, between the new Article 19 and its predecessor, Article 15 of the first Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EC).
