Renewable energy is widely recognised as a critical element in companies’ sustainability efforts. While various avenues exist for procuring renewable energy, including on-site generation, Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), and green power products or tariffs, these options may not always be accessible in certain markets.
In such cases, RECs offer an effective solution. By acquiring RECs, companies can achieve their renewable energy goals while actively supporting the transition to cleaner grids where these certificates are purchased.
RECs are a type of tradable Energy Attribute Certificate (EAC). One REC represents the
environmental attributes of the generation of a one megawatt hour of energy
produced by renewable sources.
These certificates are used to prove that your power has been generated from renewable sources.
RECs work by unbundling the environmental attributes of renewable energy from the physical electricity. When renewable energy is generated and added to the grid, RECs are created.
These certificates can then be bought and sold separately from the actual electricity, allowing individuals or organisations to claim the environmental benefits of renewable energy without physically consuming the electricity itself.

The validity period of RECs varies based on market regulations and guidelines. Generally, it aligns with the compliance/reporting period of relevant renewable energy standards. RECs, representing environmental attributes, are typically redeemed in the same reporting year as the electricity consumed during that period.
To ensure the authenticity and quality of RECs, companies should engage with reputable and trusted providers. It's essential to verify that the RECs are sourced from reliable renewable energy projects and comply with recognized certification standards.
