As of now, you as a charging station operator, provided you operate publicly accessible stations in Germany, can participate in the quota trading system via be.ENERGISED.
Please note that to use this service you need to:
1. be an active customer.
2. have a be.ENERGISED subscription, which includes rights management or a Monitoring subscription.
3. operate one or more publicly accessible charging stations in Germany.
What actually is the GHG quota and what are the advantages?
The greenhouse gas reduction quota, or GHG quota for short, requires petroleum companies to reduce their CO2 emissions from the fuels they put into circulation. GHG quota trading allows these companies to improve their environmental footprint. Through be.ENERGISED, has·to·be gmbh offers easy and profitable access to the German quota trading system.
When activating this service, you secure a fixed price per kilowatt hour of electricity, regardless of how the exchange price develops during the year.
As additional information, for every kilowatt hour of electricity that runs through a charging point in GHG quota trading, the has·to·be gmbh invests a share of the profits in renewable energy expansion projects.
How does GHG quota trading via be.ENERGISED work?
Step 1: The has·to·be gmbh receives the trading right for GHG quotas from you as the charging station operator for the entire amount of electricity that runs through one of your publicly accessible charging points. This applies to both public and private charging operations.
Step 2: The has·to·be gmbh handles the certifications of the electricity volumes with the local authorities and trades the GHG quotas with the petroleum companies.
Step 3: You, as the charging station operator, receive the income from the GHG quota trading in the amount of the previously defined fixed price, which is valid for the entire trading year. For details regarding the payout, please refer to the General Terms and Conditions, which are available to you in the charging station data sheet as part of the activation of this service (see below).
Step 4: The has·to·be gmbh invests part of the profits from marketing in the expansion of renewable energies, thus making e-mobility even greener.
How can you participate in GHG quota trading?
If you have a publicly accessible charging station in Germany (public means that the charging station must be registered within the BNetzA), then participation is very simple via the station data sheet in be.ENERGISED.
If you manage charging stations for third parties, you can obtain the right from these CPOs and pass it on to has·to·be.
Before you can do this, however, you must activate the associated right. To do this, go to the rights management of the respective group under User management/Groups/Group list. Under the tab Infrastructure management you will find the right "Greenhouse gas quota trading", which must be activated. This activates an additional tab in the charging station data sheet.
As a customer with a Monitoring subscription, this tab is automatically available to you. You do not need to perform any further steps as above to enable the tab in the station data sheet. All other steps remain the same.
In the charging station data sheet, you will then find the additional tab "Greenhouse gas quota trading". The tab is only visible on stations located in Germany.
When you click on this tab for the first time, you will be redirected to the General Terms and Conditions.
There you will find again a short description about greenhouse quota trading and a link to the General Terms and Conditions, which are available to you in the form of a German PDF.
Since greenhouse quota trading is currently only available for public charging stations in Germany, the PDF is only available in German.
Furthermore, you will find the information about the fixed price for the trading year, for which trading year it is valid and from when to when these conditions are apply.

Here you can activate greenhouse gas quota trading for the respective station by setting the "Greenhouse gas quota trading active" field to YES. In addition, you have the option of specifying whether a renewable energy source exists at the charging station location. This field currently has no effect other than forwarding information.
Click on "Save data" to save the information and your charging station will participate in greenhouse gas quota trading with immediate effect. This step must be performed for each additional station that you want to enable for GHG quota trading.
For a station that is activated in this way, the activation is also valid for the entire trading year, even if the field "Greenhouse gas quota trading" is set to NO again prematurely.
Even if a station is activated, for example, in April of the trading year, the entire energy quantity in that trading year, beginning with 1st of January, is taken into account for greenhouse gas quota trading!
Furthermore, in this menu under Terms and Conditions you will see once again the price you accepted, for which trading year it is valid, when you accepted this offer and a link where you can view the Terms and Conditions afterwards.
