The webinar will summarize information in CRS’s recently updated The Legal Basis for Renewable Energy Certificates and explain the role and functions, primary legal underpinnings, and common misunderstandings about RECs. It will also highlight circumstances where these functions are being applied and tested and explore new functions or applications of RECs.
