EKOenergy’s criteria

Since our start in 2013, we have developed criteria for electricity, gas, and heat. By clicking on the icons above you can see the criteria that different types of energy need to meet in order to qualify for our ecolabel. For a short and non-technical summary of the criteria, see the EKOenergy ecolabel page.

Our criteria are based on best practice and we regularly check if updates are needed to reflect new scientific insights and technological evolutions or to react to new market developments. EKOenergy’s criteria deal with sustainability, consumer information, additionality, auditing, tracking and avoidance of double counting.

We are currently reviewing our criteria for bioenergy. Feel free to contact us for more information.
