GSE Started to Issue Certificate of Origin for Electricity

For the first time in Georgia, Georgian State Electrosystem has issued certificates of origin for electricity generated from renewable energy sources. Certificate of origin is an electronic document that provides the consumer with complete information about the amount of energy produced from renewable sources and is used both to support the development of renewable energy sources and to encourage the use of renewable energy by energy suppliers and consumers.

On the basis of the resolution, Rules for Issuing Certificate of Origin for Electricity from Renewable Sources, approved by the Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission in 2022, GSE was entitled to issue the certificate of origin for electricity.

Currently, one supplier and 37 power plants including wind farms are registered.

Georgian State Electrosystem ensures the issuance of the certificate of origin for electricity in line with objective, transparent and non-discriminatory criteria.

GSE continues to develop the certification system and conducts informative trainings for interested parties on regular basis.
