Greenfact is delighted to host the 2019-edition of its annual green certificates conference that gathers key-market players from the European renewable energy sector.

Europe’s industry and consumers increasingly demand that we must decarbonise the economy in order to meet our climate targets. In this context, green certificates play an increasingly important role as tools to track and verify the origin of renewable energy, green gas and hydrogen.

In this conference, we will discuss – together with industry leaders – the recent developments in the various certificate markets. Why are green certificates so significant for the European industry? What products do end-consumers prefer? What are the challenges of trading green certificates? What do policymakers have in store for the future of green markets?
