This report aims at giving a general overview of the current status of cogeneration (CHP) Guarantees of Origin (GO) in the European countries covered by the E-TRACK II project. The report covers both the status of the implementation of Guarantees of Origin for cogeneration (CHP-GO) and the integration of CHP-GO with other electricity policies. The general trends throughout Europe are pointed out. The status of the regulations for CHP-GO in all Member states is compared to the EU Directive 2004/8/EC on the promotion of cogeneration based on a useful heat demand in the internal energy market. We also evaluate, interpret and discuss the interaction between different aspects of CHP-GO. This report includes three case studies covering Member States with respectively far, intermediate and slow advance in the implementation of CHP-GO. The report is concluded with a set of policy recommendations.
