PROOF OF FLOW
The global trend towards a fossil free world has brought increased focus on the certificates market as well as the traceability of the source and flow of green certificates for physical power and gas.
To harmonise the European power and gas certificate marked, the EU, TSOs, relevant authorities and local market players are moving towards a proof of flow approach. This means that the transferred certificates can be verified compared to the physical delivery of power or gas from the origin to the end-user’s destination - e.g. the Feed-in tariff (FIT) and Contract for Difference (CfD) power certificates schemes for the UK, where the certificates and the connection between the flow of the physical energy consumption is matched with the amount of energy that is consumed.
In 2018, Danske Commodities traded more than 536 TWh gas and 271 TWh power through the gas pipes and power grids in Europe. Danske Commodities supports a transparent market and can provide proof of flow across borders throughout Europe, proving what, where, and how much green gas or power is produced.
