Interview with Anny Gomes, Renewable Energy Market | Marketing Strategy at CerQlar.

Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

Anny Gomes: Post-trade management of guarantees of origin.

E.E: What’s the news about new products?

A.G: CerQlar is launching a new subscription service, Position Hub, for small and medium size GoO operations companies. 

The Position Hub offers a clear view on the position risk and certificates inventories from different registries. The user will be able to maximize products and profits by filtering certificates by various criteria, including issuing country, production date, or those currently being traded.

E.E: What are the ranges of products?

A.G: CerQlar offers four subscriptions: Position, Foundation, Transformation and Enterprise Scale.

E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active?

A.G: The market is evolving. With the latest EU legislation and the whole world worrying more about climate change, the prices of certificates are high and the market is now catching the attention of investors.

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

A.G: Increasing supply of GoOs due to more renewable energy sources, without leading to plummeting prices.

  • Growing demand for certificates, particularly for corporate environmental reporting.
  • Prices influenced by weather conditions and advanced selling timelines.
  • Norwegian hydropower is a benchmark in high demand, with stable prices during summer/2023.

REGOs (UK) market experiencing record-high prices due to EAC supply shortage after the European GoO ban. Traders are unbundling products from PPAs, and buyers are acquiring REGOs in bundles for higher resale value.

E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

A.G: The Montel MarketPlace is quite innovative. Montel Marketplace provides a new platform where anyone can trade GOs for free.

Business profiles for trading parties on the platform make it easy to find and connect with new counterparties, while Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements are made simple thanks to instant email contact.

E.E: What estimations do you have for the rest of 2023?

A.G: CerQlar expects to grow in the mid-market in Europe and will launch an update to accommodate REGOs, entering the UK market.
