• The option will be available on the website and soon via the e.GO Connect app and enable e.GO customers to trade their emissions certificates (GHG quota).

Aachen, January 12, 2022 – Next.e.GO Mobile SE, the independent German manufacturer of innovative and sustainable urban electric vehicles, today announced that it enables its customers to trade emission certificates (THG quota). Together with its partner fairnergy, e.GO Mobile offers quick and easy sales processing of emissions certificates via the website and, shortly, via the e.GO Connect app. e.GO Life owners can currently earn at least 300 euros per year from the sale of their certificates. The proceeds are credited to the customers. In addition, e.GO, together with fairnergy, offers the opportunity to use this credit in whole or in part directly via the platform to support selected sustainable projects and thus make a real and lasting contribution to an emission-free energy transition.
Several guidelines and initiatives aim to achieve emission reduction goals across the continent by promoting cost-effective and economically efficient solutions. The EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) was the world’s first plant-related “cap-and-trade” system to reduce greenhouse gas (THG) emissions. The EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) was introduced to meet the THG reduction targets. The German legal framework for the national emissions trading system (nETS), which came into force in 2021, is intended to complement the EU emissions trading system and pave the way for the greenhouse gas reduction quotas (THG quotas) that are legally assigned to a purely battery-powered electric vehicle to be traded and sold.
In order to simplify the process and enable customers to benefit from the purchase and use of the e.GO Life – the company’s first purely battery-electric vehicle – e.GO Mobile has joined forces with fairnergy and is the first independent manufacturer of battery electric vehicles, which offers its customers in Germany an integrated, digital and seamless solution.
“Using pioneering technology and innovation to promote emission-free urban mobility is our guiding principle. Including our customers in this process and giving them the opportunity to benefit from their responsible decision in favor of one of the most sustainable urban electric vehicles is something that we at e.GO take very seriously. By becoming the first independent electric car manufacturer to offer its customers trading in emissions certificates, we are taking another important step towards making electromobility even more attractive. Together with our really sustainable partner fairnergy, we are making the process as straightforward and efficient as possible for our customers, ”says Ali Vezvaei, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Next.e.GO Mobile SE.
Next.e.GO Mobile will donate the proceeds from THG quota trading to the company’s existing fleet to support sustainable projects.
