Green-e® Renewable Fuels

Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) has embarked upon a process to create a new Green-e® standard and certification program for renewable gas products and associated environmental attributes. Renewable natural gas (RNG) is increasingly becoming a solution for commercial and residential customers who want an effective way to address the greenhouse gas impacts of their natural gas use, and offers a pathway to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy.

The goal of the Standard is to accelerate the adoption of RNG, 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. Publication is expected in mid-2020. In the future, CRS will consider expansion of the program to address other renewable fuels and renewable thermal energy products.

CRS has convened a Working Group and an Advisory Committee to provide environmental, technical and market stakeholder input prior to the opening of public stakeholder consultation on the new proposed Standard. Relevant dates for the standard-development process, including public comment periods, are also listed at Green-e Standard Setting.
