How you can profit from the GHG quota

Germany’s Federal Emission Control law supports eMobility by requiring petroleum companies to reduce the carbon emissions of the fuels they supply. They must use penalty payments or trade with low carbon fuel providers to compensate for the emissions they cannot reduce. Our service, meanwhile, offers a simple and profitable gateway to the German quota trading system. You’ll be guaranteed a fixed price regardless of any market trends that may develop over the course of the year. And for every traded kilowatt-hour of electricity delivered by a publicly accessible charge point, has·to·be gmbh will invest one cent in developing
renewable energies.

Getting involved is easy!

A single click in the be.ENERGISED station datasheet is all you need to access our emissions quota trading system. We’ll offer you a fixed price per kilowatthour, which will remain valid for the full trading year. Emissions quota will be traded for the whole year, starting in January 2022.

GHG Quota Trading: FAQ

1. Is Greenhouse Gas Reduction Law emissions trading only for Germany – or can I take advantage of the service in other countries as well?

Regulated in Germany since 2015, the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Quota is a market-based environmental protection measure. Its target is to bring more renewable energies into the transport sector, thus cutting down on greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Starting in 2022, the ‘Quota 2.0’ also allows charge point operators and EV drivers to engage in emissions trading. This iteration also takes compliance with the new European Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) into account. Numerous countries, including France, the Netherlands and Austria, are already working on ways to implement this EU directive. So, we’re hoping to be able to offer an emissions trading service for the Austrian market soon too.

2. Can eMobility service providers also take advantage of emissions trading?

Unfortunately, not. Since January 2022, only charging infrastructure operators and eDrivers can get involved. eMobility service providers don’t have access to emissions trading and aren’t taken into account.

3. Do I need to be an existing be.ENERGISED client to take part in Greenhouse Gas Reduction emissions trading?

Yes. At the moment, we’re only able to guarantee access to the German emissions trading system via our own EV Charging platform. Every kilowatt-hour of electricity intended for trading needs to be delivered through be.ENERGISED. You can get involved in trading with just one click on the platform. And if you’d like to learn more about be.ENERGISED, feel free to write to us using the contact form.

4. Does activating trading mean extra costs for me?

No. Activation is completely free for you and involves no additional costs. On the contrary, you take part in emissions trading with a view to achieving additional revenues. We’ll pay this income out to you on the basis of a fixed price per kilowatt-hour. And for every traded kilowatt-hour of electricity delivered by a charge point, has·to·be will invest one cent in developing renewable energies.

5. When does it make sense for me to activate emissions trading?

Since the system involves no additional costs, you should get involved in trading from the very first kilowatt-hour. The additional income potential varies depending on the usage and capacity of your publicly accessible charging station. As a guideline, our clients can average over €1000 in additional revenues per AC charge point in 2022. For DC charge points, the average figure can be over €12,000.
