  • Investigates the potential for coordination between existing voluntary and mandatory tracking and verification regimes for tradable renewable certificates (TRCs) in the US. Provide recommendations for the development of a national network to track and verify certificates, with the underlying assumption that the development of a coordinated US network for tracking and verifying TRCs will build consumer confidence, eliminate the potential for double counting of TRCs, and accelerate the market for renewable energy more generally. Prepared for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
