Renewable energy certificates
Backed by Equinor
In 2019, we became part of one of the world’s largest energy companies, Equinor. Equinor is a broad energy company with more than 21,000 colleagues committed to providing affordable energy for societies worldwide, taking a leading role in the energy transition. With Equinor in our corner, we have strengthened our financial muscle and increased the scale of our business.
We are Equinor’s route-to-market for renewable energy. We handle all of Equinor’s power and certificates trading activities, including trading of EUAs, El-certs, ROCs and REGOs.
Power produced from renewable energy sources is fed into and delivered through the same grids as fossil fuel energy. Renewable energy consumption is only distinguished and claimed with relevant certificate products across regions, including Europe and the US.
At Danske Commodities, we provide a range of renewable electricity solutions and offer Guarantees of Origin across Europe to suppliers and corporates. In the UK, we supply ROCs and REGOs from the wind farms Danske Commodities has under management. Lastly, we offer Elcertificates services in Norway and Sweden.
We are active in both the EU ETS scheme and the voluntary carbon credit market. Everyday activities such as production of electricity, heating of buildings, driving and flying result in the emission of carbon dioxide, which is a major contributor to climate change. These emissions can be compensated for by purchasing carbon credits, which in turn fund investments in carbon-reducing projects.
We have an extensive network across Europe and trade a diverse range of carbon allowances, including EUAs and UKA, as well as voluntary carbon credits. This makes our professional traders well-positioned to match corporate compliance or voluntary requirements with compatible carbon products.
Biogas is a renewable gas that is produced by upgrading biogas into a natural gas equivalent. It is derived from biomass (often from sewage, landfill, manure, food waste or distillery waste). We move biogas across borders through our extensive gas-trading setup and ensure correct handling of certified biogas through Mass-Balance (physical biogas and certificates transferred together) and Proof of Sustainability. Being one of Denmark’s biggest non-asset owners’ route-to-market for Danish-produced biomethane, we handle a vast portfolio of certificates.
Continuously selling to the highest paying markets and schemes, we optimise the value added to you as a producer. And through close dialogue, we help shape your strategic direction, guiding you on interesting opportunities besides biogas, such as biomethanol, ammonia, hydrogen, carbon capture or other similar which could increase overall earnings.
