Green-e Renewable Energy Standard for Chile
Updated April 12, 2018
The Green-e Renewable Energy Standard for Chile ("Standard for Chile") is being developed by Center for Resource Solutions as a country-specific certification Standard that will facilitate Green-e Energy certification of renewable energy products throughout Chile. The intent of this and other Green-e certification Standards is to accelerate the development of renewable generation and renewable electricity markets, and to provide consumers a meaningful mechanism through which they can express demand for renewable electricity. The Standard for Chile will include guidance on:
- Interaction of renewable energy purchasing and local laws and policies
- Environmental sustainability criteria for eligible renewable resources
- Use of renewable energy tracking systems
- Support for new and upgraded renewable electricity generators
- Customer disclosure
- Future interaction with neighboring electricity grids
The accompanying Terms of Reference document for the Standard for Chile will explain key issues the Standard for Chile addresses, including market value, sustainability, comparison to and compatibility with other existing relevant standards, implementation risk and how to address such risk.
