HKN NEU100

HKN NEU100 logo

HKN NEU100 is a label/standard for green electricity based on Guarantees of Origin (GoOs). HKN NEU100 is intended to promote new production facilities for renewable energy sources and to help ensure that the expanding reservoir of renewable energy production facilities is actually incorporated into the energy supply system and its development.

100% of the GoOs used come from new facilities that means plants that have been up and running for no longer than six years at most. HKN NEU100 is climate neutral, which means that all related greenhouse gas emissions are offset by use of emission reduction certificates.

HKN NEU100 can also be modified and/or expanded to meet the EKOenergy/Green-e/LEED – standards. HKN NEU100 is certified and audited by an independent auditor: theTÜV Rheinland GmbH.
