Following options of various certificates guarantee the origin of energy
Domestic renewable energy certificates (India RECs)
Domestic RECs are obligatory in nature and consumers to have a statutory obligation to purchase them to meet their renewable purchase obligation (RPO).

Guarantees of origin certify that a quantity of power is indeed generated from the renewable energy sources. In 2009, the European Union made it compulsory to use GoOs to track and disclose renewable energy.
International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs)
I-RECs are the equivalent of Guarantees of Origin outside of the European Union and North America. The I-REC Standard stems from an initiative to track the origin of electricity beyond the borders of established renewable energy certificate markets and to help end-users reliably retrace it through appropriate certification and documentation.
