Production devices
The account holder needs to register the production devices for which guarantees of origin are requested. Only production devices producing power from renewable energy or high-efficiency cogeneration may be registered in the National Registry for Guarantees of Origin.

Production devices benefiting from feed in tariff or market premium contracts

According to the French law 2017-227 voted on the 24th of February 2017, and to the Arrêté dated on the 24th of August 2018 which entered into force on the January 4th 2019, production devices benefitting from feed in tariff or market premium contracts in France must be registered on the French GO registry on the account opened for the French State.

The producer doesn’t need to open an account on the registry to register its production device, and this registration is free of charge but mandatory.

All production devices corresponding to the following criteria are concerned :

  • Production of electricity from a renewable source, installed in the French Metropole
  • Benefitting from a feed in tariff or market premium contract
  • Installed capacity above 100kW

In order to register their production devices, producers are invited to download and fill in the attached excel spreadsheet, enregistrement_installations_NOM DU PRODUCTEUR.xlsx. Then producers have to send this file by email to only. All files sent to another address will not be considered.

Please note that the registration of production devices could require the validation of DSOs, and last up to 2 months.

The liste of registered production devices will be published and regularly updated on the Powernext website.
