Tech/Engineering - Energy / Power Generation / energy trading
English term or phrase: greenhouse gas emission allowance etc.
from energy trading

We are aware that you will enter into transactions involving energy and energy-related commodities, including electric power, coal, electric power capacity, natural gas, environmental products (such as greenhouse gas emission allowances, levy exemption certificates and reneewable obligation certificates), heating oil and other petroleum by-products.

Actually I would appreciate suggestions for all the 3 terms in the bracket. I am aware of the fact that I should only ask one term at a time, but I didn't want to bore you with three questions - all with the same context. Anybody who could help me, pls.?

Treibhausgasemmissionsberechtigungen
Explanation:
lässt sich auch durch Bindestrich lesbarer gestalten: Treibhausgas-Emmissionsberechtigungen

levy exemption certificates = Bescheinigungen der Abgabenbefreiung

renewable obligation certificates =
Bescheinigungen über die Mindestquote für erneuerbare Energien.

In der Umweltdiskussion werden aber auch im Deutschen oft die englischen Termini verwendet, v.a. Renewable Obligation (RO) und Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs)


Hoffe, das hilft Dir weiter!
