Here at Ostrom, we work hard to ensure we’re contributing towards the energy transition every day. This is why, since we started in April 2021, we’ve only supplied our customers with 100% green energy—no compromises, just renewables.
As we continue to make these promises, we want to make sure you feel you can trust us, too. This is why we got certified by the TÜV Nord to verify the origins of our electricity.
We are very happy that such an important institution recognizes our endeavor to supply our customers with green energy.
At Ostrom, we buy electricity through our partnerships with green power producers (PPA’s) and in the wholesale market from certified green sources. As we cannot cover the entire electricity supply through our PPA’s, we need to purchase electricity on the wholesale exchange from certified green sources to cover the difference. Certificates of origin (Herkunftsnachweise) make sure that the energy we obtain from wholesale sellers is from renewable sources as well.
As we grow and get more customers, we will add more generators over time to cover the electricity requirements of our customers. We will also extend our PPA partnerships with green energy suppliers to further continue enabling as many people as possible to get green energy.
You can find our current generators here.
There are a couple of requirements that need to be fulfilled to get certified. The auditors examine the business and all of its workings very thoroughly.

A smart meter is a type of energy meter that is used to measure the consumption of electric, gas, or water in a building or home. Unlike traditional meters, which require a technician to physically read the meter, smart meters can communicate their readings remotely to the utility company using a wireless connection.
