Since 2001 and 2003, the EU Directives on the Internal Energy Market and on Renewable Energy set out a framework for tracking of electricity attributes for electricity disclosure, particularly including the instrument of Guarantees of Origin (GO). Based on preceding projects (like E-TRACK and RE-DISS I), the RE-DISS II project aims at overcoming the still existing shortfalls in the coordination and implementation of related policies in the EU27+NO+CH+IS+HR. Competent Bodies of these countries are the major target group, but European institutions and electricity market actors will also be addressed. The project provides general and specific recommendations for the implementation of tracking systems both for countries with well advanced tracking systems, and for such countries which still need to establish basic elements, focussing on aspects which have to be coordinated in order to ensure reliable operations of the national tracking and disclosure schemes in a pan-European internal electricity market. This includes provision of centrally processed and coordinated data like Electricity Residual Mix results for all European countries and high-quality environmental data for electricity disclosure, which allows Competent Bodies to minimise double counting and to maximise informative value of disclosure for consumers. In the end, RE-DISS II will provide a comprehensive set of established methods and procedures needed to operate and maintain a European Tracking System and will support key actors to agree on a sustainable future governance structure for such a coordinated system.
In this page:
- Supporting the Competent Bodies in improving their GO and disclosure systems by providing general and specific recommendations, and by promoting exchange of expertise between them.
- Developing methodologies for managing key data needed for disclosure on a European level, providing annual results for Residual Mix calculations as well as delivering comprehensive data for environmental indicators, including data which is based on life cycle assessment, ready to use for disclosure.
- Providing country-specific information on the status of implementation of tracking-related policies, and a cross-cutting analysis of the status of the implementation of GO and electricity disclosure in general. The project will also provide specific information which is relevant for decisions by European countries about the mutual recognition of GO.
- Developing practical guidelines both to Competent Bodies and to other stakeholders helping to improve the informative value of disclosure for end consumers
