GreenStream to provide EKOenergy
GreenStream has signed the licence agreement for EKOenergy, the first pan-European ecolabel for renewable electricity.
EKOenergy is a tool developed by a network of 24 environmental NGOs from 20 different countries. The EKOenergy criteria is more than being just renewables. EKOenergy must originate from powerplants that fulfill the EKOenergy sustainability rules. Furthermore, a part of the green premium will go to new investments in renewable electricity, via the EKOenergy climate fund.
According to Michael Weber, Group Head of GreenStream’s environmental commodity trading services, the move will enable the company to serve their clients all over Europe even better in the future, he says. “This is a valuable extension to our product catalogue and from now on we are able to trade also EKOenergy.”
GreenStream, with offices across Europe and in China, focuses on the provision of green certificate and carbon asset management services, delivering energy efficiency projects in China and comprehensive services in the climate and renewable energy markets.
