Danish biomethane guarantees of origin (GOs) are issued for upgraded biogas granted feed-in support in general
In general, biomethane GOs in Denmark are issued on the basis of the upgraded amounts of biogas granted feed-in support. The owner of the upgrading plant may apply the Danish Energy Agency for exception of the support.
Energinet will the following month issue Gos specifying that the biogas plant supplying gas through the upgrading plant, exempt from support, has not received production support.On all GOs it is clearly indicated, if production support was received for the injected biomethane.
Biomethane GOs may be traded by certificate account holders prior to the final transfer to a consumer. When a biogas producer sells his or her biomethane GOs to a consumer as proof of the origin of the green value in the energy that the consumer has purchased, Energinet then cancels the biogas producer’s biomethane GOs in our register.
This ensures an unbroken transfer from producer to consumer of the green value of energy produced from a renewable energy source – even though the quality characteristics of the end product received by the consumer is indistinguishable from conventional gas.
Energinet work closely with our European counterparts to establish a trading platform for biomethane GOs.
Currently, GOs issued by Energinet are accepted by the EU Emissions Trading System as an offset for carbon reporting purposes.
