Renewable Energy Certificate System
The RECs International and the I-RECs systems aim to promote and provide economic support to the environmental value of electricity produced from renewable energy sources worldwide.
Similar to GOs, RECs International and I-RECs certify one MWh of electricity from renewable sources during the year of issue.
The RECs and I-RECs certificates are distinct from the physical supply of electricity, meaning they can be marketed separately from the referred electricity. By using them, buyer finances the electricity produced from renewable sources, thus, testifying their commitment to the environment.
