A key component of Green-e Energy certification is guaranteeing sole ownership of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). In RY2013 Verification, a number of RECs submitted for certification were required to be replaced. One of the primary reasons for replacement was the existence of claims on submitted RECs, rendering them ineligible for certification. With more and more players entering into the realm of renewable energy generation, clear and accurate marketing regarding renewable energy use is fundamental to maintaining market integrity. We invite you and your generator counter-parties to join us for a two-part webinar series (September 23rd and September 30th) focusing on explaining double claims and how to ensure sole ownership of the RECs you purchase.
Part 2 will be geared towards renewable energy generators and project developers. We will walk through the meaning and weight of Green-e Attestations; describe how reviews are completed; and explain how double claims can impact business relationships.
