Energy Attribute Certificates
There is a renewable energy revolution underway and your business can be part of it.
25% of the world’s emissions come from generating electricity. Purchasing renewable energy certificates is an immediate, straightforward and cost-effective way to take responsibility for emissions from energy use.
What are Renewable Energy Certificates?
Renewable energy certificates, known as Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs), enable companies to reach renewable energy and emission reduction targets while contributing to the growth of clean energy worldwide. They ensure renewable energy generation is tracked effectively to support credible claims of renewable energy use.
Each EAC tracks 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable energy from production through to consumption and retirement on third-party registries, to reliably evidence your renewable energy claim. EACs are categorised by where and when they are generated and where they can be used. We deliver a wide range of renewable energy solutions to meet our clients’ requirements for high-quality, global EACs that match their consumption, including Renewable Energy Certificates (RECS) in North America, Guarantees of Origin (GOS) in Europe, and Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) in the UK.
For companies with operations across the rest of the world, I-REC provides the tracking systems required for reliable, credible use of renewable energy outside North America and Europe. We can source I-RECs globally, through our comprehensive renewable energy portfolios developed for clients.
Renewables are the second largest contributor to global electricity production. They accounted for 25.2% of world generation in 2018, after coal and ahead of gas, nuclear and oil.
