EKOenergy’s criteria for electricity

The text EKOenergy – network & label describes under which conditions electricity can get the EKOenergy ecolabel.

Worldwide: These criteria were originally meant for Europe. However, on 7 August 2015 EKOenergy’s Board agreed that the criteria can also be applied outside Europe. With regard to tracking, a paragraph was added to chapter 10 of the text. The rest of the wording will be updated to better reflect our worldwide character during the next criteria review, in 2020-2021.

Hydropower: In 2018 and 2019 we updated our criteria with regard to hydropower. The new criteria, listed in chapter 8.3.C of this text are now being piloted but haven’t been finally approved yet. The approval of the final version for hydropower criteria will happen during the criteria review of 2020-2021. If you are interested in getting a hydropower plant approved for the sales of EKOenergy, you can download the application form for hydropower plants here (PDFDOC).
