Certification systems Recognition according to Biomass Electricity Sustainability Ordinance

For consumers of fuels in Germany, biofuels or biogas can only be counted against their quota obligation or receive tax relief if they can prove that biofuels or biogas meet the sustainability criteria resulting from Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of energy from renewable sources. This also applies to bioliquids for electricity generation if economic operators wish to receive support under the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG 2014). Proof of sustainability can be provided through so-called national systems or under voluntary schemes of the EU Commission. Sustainability data shall be transmitted by economic operators to the Member States concerned.

Data relevant for the German market must be entered by economic operators in the state web application Sustainable Biomass Systems (Nabisy) of the competent authority in accordance with the Biofuel Sustainability Ordinance (Biokraft-NachV) and biomass electricity sustainability regulation (BioSt-NachV). The Nabisy web application is directly available to the main customs offices and the biofuel quota office, the network operators and the competent authorities of the other Member States. In addition, Nabisy also serves as an instrument for the competent body to prepare the annual experience and evaluation report to be prepared for the Federal Government and the EU Commission.

Nabisy provides evidence of the sustainability and management of a mass balance system for biofuels and biogas and bioliquids under EU Directive 2009/28/EC.
