Implemented in 2003, the Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGOs) electronic certificate system enables producers of renewable-sourced electricity that is eligible unsder the EU Renewables Directive to be issued with evidence (guarantees) that their electricity is indeed renewable.

Generators will be able to prove their green credentials at home and abroad as the scheme is based around mutual recognition between EU Member States. Although the certificates have no actual monetary value in and of themselves, they will prove useful for smaller generators and those who wish to conduct trade across national boundaries.
