TÜV SÜD is a global technical services provider with long-standing international experience in the field of energy certification. TÜV SÜD provide certification services for traditional ecopower products.
The “TÜV SÜD Generation EE” label certifies electricity produced from renewable resources where generation can be attributed to a clearly identifiable source. The “TÜV SÜD Generation EE” standard comprises 'general requirements' concerning the organization to be certified, 'special requirements' addressing the generation and the recording of the generation of the individual plants, and 'optional requirements'. Optional requirements are defined for electrical work and power guarantees (“Generation EE+” module) and for furnishing acceptance as new plants (“Generation EEnew” module).
In general, the certification of the “Generation EE+” module (work and power guarantees) can only be provided for a pool of plants. The certified pool of power stations enables the organization to be certified to guarantee the power purchaser that the pool of plants is able to produce the requested load profile at any time. Compliance with the “Generation EE+” module is particularly suitable for green power products certified in accordance with the TÜV SÜD standard “product EE02” (certification of electricity products from renewable sources with simultaneous supply).
