GHG quota providers: Stiftung Warentest cannot recommend all of them
But it’s not just about the amount of the payment itself, but also about: Which of the service providers is recommended at all? After all, the driver of an electric car or scooter cannot apply for the premium directly from the Federal Environment Agency, but the applicant must use a service provider.
Many of these agencies are completely new to the business. They keep up to 20 percent of the premium paid by the Federal Environment Agency as a commission – the rest goes to the applicant who wants to register his electric car, charging station or e-scooter.
Stiftung Warentest has looked at the market and gives an overview of which providers it considers recommendable and who not.
Providers of the GHG premium under test
According to its own statements, Stiftung Warentest surveyed 44 providers who enable private e-mobility users to participate in GHG quota trading. 36 of them had replied. All providers who meet the minimum requirements for the criteria “initial contract term”, “contract extension”, “risk transfer”, “premium amount” and “time of payment” were evaluated.
