The power of REU trading

Having explored what Renewable Energy Units (REUs) are and their potential for businesses in part 1, we delve deeper into the world of REU trading. How can businesses trade these units, and what benefits can they reap by doing so?


How Does REU trading work?

Companies with an account in the Energy for Transport Register can transfer REUs amongst each other. This trading system was established so that participants can collectively deliver their mandatory share of renewable energy in the most cost-effective way and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. REU trading takes place outside of the Energy for Transport Register, and the Dutch Emission Authority (NEA) plays no direct role in it.


Benefits of REU trading for businesses

  • Financial Incentives: Businesses producing more renewable energy than required can sell their surplus REUs to other companies unable to meet their annual obligation. This creates a new revenue stream.  
  • Flexibility: Companies have the choice to either produce and register renewable energy themselves, buy REUs from other businesses, or a combination of both.
  • Promotion of Sustainable Practices: Trading in REUs encourages businesses to invest more in renewable energy sources, as there are direct financial benefits linked to renewable energy production.
