A Guarantee of Origin (GO) labels the origin of a product and provides information to customers on the source of their products. It operates as a tracking system ensuring the quality of a product such as hydrogen or electricity.

The proposed Premium Hydrogen GO system, similar to the existing green electricity GO scheme, decouples the green attribute from the physical flow of the product and makes Premium Hydrogen available EU-wide, independently from its production sites (see graphs below).

The GO scheme for Premium Hydrogen includes the GO governance; eligibility and registration of production plants; the GO and information content; issuance, transferability and cancellation; the registry system and trading platform.
