Who can buy certificates?

Electricity and thermal energy certificates can only be bought by traders. For green gas and hydrogen certificates, both a trader and end user can buy certificates. 
So to buy certificates, you need to sign up as a trader or end user.

Renewable generation & batteries

According to Section 1 of the Electricity Act, a battery is not renewable. If the battery is within the system boundary of the renewable generation plant, the power is not renewable. In this situation, VertiCer does not issue MoUs. More information can be found in 'Downloads'.
