Guarantees of Origin: We are offering a variety of different labels
At Bischoff & Ditze energy we can offer you a broad range of Guarantees of Origin (GoOs) label. Our selection of green energy standards includes (but is in no way limited to): RenewablePLUS, GO NEW100, EKOenergy, Green-e/LEED, the I-REC Standard, ok-power, almost all TÜV-Süd EE standards (EE01, EE02 & EE+) and GoOs in general (with or without added features).
RenewablePLUS – a reliable choice with added value
RenewablePLUS is one of the best established labels around. In addition to its reliability, RenewablePLUS features a guaranteed investment in either completely new facilities, expansion of existing facilities and/or environmental measures related to renewable energy production. RenewablePLUS is also completely climate neutral, which means that all related greenhouse gas emissions are offset by the use of emission reduction certificates. Upon request we can also modify and/or expand RenewablePLUS, for example to meet the EKOenergy/Green-e/LEED – standards. RenewablePLUS is certified and audited by the TÜV Rheinland GmbH, a globally renowned independent auditor.

GO NEW100 – new support for new renewables
Our label for GoO-standards GO NEW100 is intended to promote new production facilities for renewable energy sources. Therefore, 100% of the GoOs used in this standard come from new facilities. In using this label you help ensure that the expanding reservoir of renewable energy production facilities is actually incorporated into the energy supply system and its development. GO NEW100 is also completely climate neutral, which means that all related greenhouse gas emissions are offset by the use of emission reduction certificates. Upon request we can also modify and/or expand GO NEW100, for example to meet the EKOenergy/Green-e/LEED – standards. GO NEW100 is certified and audited by the TÜV Rheinland GmbH, a globally renowned independent auditor.

International REC Standard (I-REC) – worldwide system for GoOs from renewables
If you have customers with an international business (or are a transnational business yourself), they may want to account for the origin of the energy they use and prove origin from renewable sources in several different countries. By using the International REC Standard (I-REC Standard) for Guarantees of Origin (GoOs), we can help you meet this challenge and obtain the appropriate GoOs for you, which can be used worldwide. The I-REC Standard for GoOs is already applicable and can be used – for your business or for your customers – in several countries around the globe.
Currently (in June 2016), facilities can be registered and GoOs can be issued & cancelled in accordance with local provisions in (among others) Chile, China, Honduras India, Mexico, Taiwan, Turkey, Uganda and Vietnam. Many other countries like: Brazil, Israel, Japan, Russia, Singapore and South-Africa are currently in talks with the I-REC Standard’s board.

Do you need to win a tender? Do your customers have additional requirements? Do you have particular request that your GoOs have to meet, like a certain origin, technology, location or age of the plants? Or maybe just need GoOs without any extra features? No problem! We will help you find the best solution for you.
EKOenergy is an eco label for electricity by an international network of environmental organisations. It stands for 100% green/renewable energy. EKOenergy also cooperates with the US American Green-e standard and is compatible and recommended by the US LEED standard. Additionally, climate protection and river restoration projects are financed through a funds-based-model.
Currently, the EKOenergy-label accepts the following European renewable energy sources – with some additional requirements for some of these: wind power, solar power, hydro power, ocean energy (tidal power, wave power, etc.), geothermal energy, bio-energy (solid, liquid and gaseous), landfill gas and sewage gas.
Per MWh (Mega-Watt-hour) sold an amount of at least 0,10 € is paid into the EKOenergy climate fund. For hydro power, an additional amount of 0,10 € per MWh is paid into the environmental fond for river restoration. The EKOenergy label and network are financed by a fee of 0,08 € per MWh sold.
Moreover and additionally, EKOenergy is a network of European environmental organisations that promote and push for developing and establishing renewable energy and for a sustainable, green and climate-friendly energy infrastructure. The EKOenergy network is comprised of a management board, an administration and of supporting advisory groups and workgroups.

By use of the International Standard REC (I-REC Standard) GoOs for power derived from electricity from renewable energy sources may be issued and cancelled for companies in many countries around the world.
