Energy attribute certificates.
To achieve green energy targets.
Given the rise of global GHG emissions and the urgency of climate action, the promotion of renewable energy represents a high-potential mitigation opportunity that should not be underestimated.
Many companies are setting ambitious renewable energy targets: the collaborative and global initiative RE100 unites more than 100 influential businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity.
At EcoTraders we help promote this clean energy transition by providing energy attribute certificates.
What are energy attribute certificates?
A energy attribute certificate is a tracking instrument that provides a unique statement representing the ownership rights to the environmental, social and other non-power attributes of renewable electricity generation. It verifies that one megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was generated and fed into the grid from an eligible renewable energy resource (such as wind, solar, hydropower).
This is a flexible and cost-efficient solution to help meet renewable energy targets, in particular where self-generation of the renewable electricity, or its direct purchase through a Power Purchase Agreement, are not viable options.
Energy attribute certificates must always be sourced from the same grid from which electricity is consumed, and therefore different green energy certificates exist in different areas around the world: Guarantees of Origin (GOs) in Europe, Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in North America, International RECs (I-RECs) and Tradable Instruments for Global Renewables (TIGRs) in many countries around the world.
As a direct green energy projects partner, we provide different types of energy attribute certificates, applicable in different countries.
Sourcing quality energy attribute certificates
Strong partnerships in the renewable energy industry
Communication on the social and environmental benefits associated to the certificates. Indeed, renewable energy generation also enhances energy security and independence, reduces air pollution, improves public health and supports adaptation goals – co-benefits that are important to corporate sustainable strategy.
