EKOenergia on energia ökomärgis. Ökomärgise eesmärk on abistada tarbijaid keerukal energiaturul orienteerumises. Pole üllatav, et EKOenergiana saab müüa vaid energiat taastuvatest energiaallikatest. Kuid EKOenergia on rohkem kui vaid taastuvelekter. See täidab täiendavad jätkusuutlikkuse nõuded, mille on paika pannud EKOenergia võrgustik ja osa energia hinnast investeeritakse uutesse taastuvenergia projektidesse.
EKOenergia märgis on ainus elektrimärgis, mis on välja töötatud rahvusvahelise konsultatsiooni tulemusel, see töötab rahvusvahelise turu jaoks ning on laialt tunnustatud.
The nonprofit ecolabel
EKOenergy is an international not-for-profit ecolabel for energy (renewable electricity and renewable gas).
In addition to being renewable, the energy sold with the EKOenergy label fulfils additional sustainability criteria and finances projects that combat energy poverty. This way, the EKOenergy ecolabel brings additionality to renewable energy certificates such as Guarantees of Origin (GOs), RECs and I-RECs.
Our ecolabel is easy to use
We have licensed sellers around the world, making it easy to buy EKOenergy wherever you are. EKOenergy can be used for your home or for your company. If you’d like to buy EKOenergy-labelled electricity or sell EKOenergy-labelled renewables, please get in contact.
Our ecolabel is a communication tool
The EKOenergy label is an internationally recognised communication tool. By using our logo, individuals and companies demonstrate their commitment to renewable energy and encourage others to do the same. This helps speed up the transition to a 100% renewable world. Users of EKOenergy-labelled energy can use the logo in their publications, on their buildings, and on products made with EKOenergy.
Our international team can answer your questions in many languages, and our materials are available in over 30 languages.
