Regulator’s hydrogen Guarantee of Origin consultation now live


Visit the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water’s consultation hub and have your say on the latest Guarantee of Origin (GO) consultation package.

The GO scheme will track and verify emissions associated with hydrogen, renewable electricity and potentially other clean energy products, underpinning market development and supporting trade.

Your feedback will form an important role in the design of the scheme, including:

  • the emissions accounting approach
  • the approach to certifying renewable electricity
  • scheme expansion (to new products).

You can also download the latest GO Emissions Accounting Approach Calculator. The calculator provides an opportunity to test how an emissions accounting approach for the GO scheme may work. This is a revised version of the Hydrogen Production Emissions calculator originally developed by us as part of the Guarantee of Origin trials to assist in estimating greenhouse gas emissions from a hydrogen production process.

It is anticipated that the legislation giving effect to the GO scheme will be in place in 2024.
