Why green energy?
To make electro mobility truly sustainable, it is essential that every part of the value chain is considered. Charging is one of the most important factors.
Supporting renewable energies
MINI Charging therefore promotes the use of renewable energy and ensures that for each charging event the equivalent amount of energy consumed is fed into the electricity grid as green electricity. This compensation for the amount of energy consumed is achieved through so-called Guarantees of Origin.
One centralised system
Guarantees of Origin are the established form of green energy certificates (so-called Energy Attribute Certificates – EACs) in Europe, which certify how and where electricity is produced from renewable energy sources. They are therefore also referred to as the ‘birth certificate’ of electricity. Producers of electricity from renewable energy sources can have these Guarantees of Origin issued by independent registration bodies for the amount of electricity they produce and feed into the grid.
100% wind power
Our partners Digital Charging Solutions and ClimatePartner ensure that all charging events from MINI Charging obtain and ‘cancel’ (i.e. mark as used) a corresponding quantity of Guarantees of Origin. The Guarantees of Origin used here guarantee that electricity from European wind turbines was fed into the network. In this way, MINI Charging supports one of the most environmentally friendly ways of generating electricity.
