1.  ECOHZ promotes EKOenergy

Last week, the Norwegian company ECOHZ started informing its customers about EKOenergy.
'EKOenergy deserves the support from all participants in the market (...). ECOHZ is ready to take EKOenergy to the market, and convince customers of its value.' writes ECOHZ's CEO in his blog

2.  First hydropower, and first project ideas

by Teemu TuovinenSince last week, the electricity from 5 Norwegian hydropower plants can be sold as EKOenergy. For each MWh of EKOenergy hydropower sold, 10 cents will go to the Environmental Fund. That money will be used to finance river restoration projects. See here for a first list of possible river restoration projects.
