Issued, canceled and traded guarantees of origin
Guarantees of origin (GOs) for renewable gas may be traded by certificate account holders prior to the final transfer to a consumer.
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.
