On March 11th, a workshop was held on “Mapping Challenges for certificate handling in relation with energy carrier conversion”. It was targeted at issuing bodies and registry operators of guarantees of origin (GOs), with a view to have a discussion with the parties involved in the design and technical management of GOs regarding energy carrier conversion. 85 people participated.
The aim of this workshop was to establish common understanding of the practical challenges and potential solutions, and to collect feedback from the attendees regarding the challenges they experience or foresee in their domain. This input will be used to elaborate solutions in the REGATRACE task 4.3 regarding coordination between the electricity and renewable gas and hydrogen certification systems. This task 4.3 is developing a harmonised set of rules for the conversion of GOs of various energy carriers (by October 2021) and a design study on the technical requirements of a coordinated conversion process (by April 2022).
