Stakeholder Comment Period Extended for Green-e Renewable Fuels Standard

Comment period extended through April 30, 2020

Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) seeks feedback on the Green-e® Renewable Fuels Standard for Canada and the United States and is accepting feedback from all interested stakeholders through April 30, 2020. The objective of the Standard and certification program is to accelerate the adoption of renewable fuels, while ensuring that the gas is from sustainable renewable resources, meets the highest environmental standards, and that customers are protected in their purchase and ability to make verifiable usage claims.

Through the Green-e® certification program, CRS’s consumer protection and product disclosure rules, in addition to its environmental criteria, will help consumers understand their options and make informed choices, increasing trust and stability in the renewable energy market, leading to more ongoing market demand assurances for projects and more investor confidence. 

Stakeholder comment period open through April 30, 2020.

To comment, take the survey. Prior to taking the survey, you may download and review a PDF of all survey questions.

Feedback is requested on the following topics:

  • Definitions
  • Production Pathways
  • Production Requirements
  • Carbon Intensity
  • Vintage of Renewable Production
  • Facility Age and market Start Date
  • Location of Facilities
  • Raw Biogas
  • Third Party Verification and Consumer Disclosure Requirements

Stakeholder comments are due by midnight April 30, 2020. CRS may conduct a second comment period, incorporating feedback from this first comment period. The draft Standard and this PDF summary of all potential changes are available at Green-e® Renewable Fuels Documents for you to view before completing the survey.

This survey may take up to 30 minutes to complete, depending on your responses. If you need to pause while taking the survey (for example, to look up information), you may resume it at any time prior to midnight on the due date, by using the link that directed you there initially, provided you do so from the same computer and browser. You may also go back and change your answers at any time prior to clicking “Submit Survey Responses” at the end of the survey.
