Study Energy Attribute Certificates 2023.pdf
This study, conducted from January 2022 to February 2023 on behalf of Eskom and the South African-German Energy Programme (SAGEN) explores the potential implementation of an Energy Attribute Certificate (EAC) scheme for renewable energy and green hydrogen in South Africa. The research is based on desk research and interviews with experts in the energy certification and trading field. The study comprehensively analyzes various aspects of an EAC system, including international standards, labels, use cases, green tariffs, regulatory framework, electronic registry, operational practices, and governance. Its primary goal is to provide recommendations for the establishment of a functional and widely accepted EAC system in South Africa, benefitting GIZ, Eskom, the public sector, and energy industry stakeholders in the country.
