Clean Energy Accounting Project


The Clean Energy Accounting Project (CEAP) develops standardized, stakeholder-reviewed clean energy and GHG emissions accounting guidance addressing outstanding questions in voluntary and regulatory markets.


As more companies and communities set goals to advance clean energy, they are often constrained by the lack of information on measuring clean energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) impacts. Center for Resource Solutions launched CEAP in 2020 to address these gaps by:

  • Publishing consensus clean energy and GHG accounting guidance
  • Documenting and promoting best practices
  • Facilitating collaboration across leading organizations
  • Developing education resources
  • Providing technical assistance and verification services


“The increasing pace and scope of clean energy and greenhouse gas goals makes substantiating credible claims all the more important. CRS’s 20 years of leadership in renewable energy standard development and environmental innovation makes it exceptionally qualified to solve energy and greenhouse gas accounting questions that can complicate sustainable energy progress. The Clean Energy Accounting Project will be a crucial resource for organizations and government agencies working through the details of accounting for clean energy transactions and substantiating credible claims.”
