Green-e Energy International Framework Criteria for Renewable Energy Certification
Background on the Green-e Energy International Framework Criteria for Renewable Energy Certification
Green-e Energy seeks feedback on a revised draft of the Green-e Energy International Framework for Renewable Energy Certification (Framework) and is accepting feedback from all interested stakeholders through 11:59pm Pacific Time, February 24, 2017. The Framework will be used to develop high-quality renewable energy standards for Green-e Energy certification, in order to accelerate the development of renewable generation and renewable electricity markets, and provide consumers a meaningful mechanism through which they can express demand for renewable electricity.
CRS may also conduct a third stakeholder comment period at a later date, incorporating feedback from this second comment period. You can review a PDF of all survey questions prior to submitting comments
The current version of the Framework and associated comment period documents are available below:
- The Framework—English version. This is the definitive version in the case of any differences with a translated version:
- 简体字—Chinese translation of the Framework in simplified characters
- 繁體字—Chinese translation of the Framework in traditional characters
- Español—Spanish translation of the Framework
- العربية—Arabic translation of the Framework
The Framework provides guidance and structure for CRS's future development of country-specific certification requirements for renewable energy transactions, including green power programs offered by electric service providers, tradable energy attribute certificate products, direct power purchase agreements (PPAs), and on-site generation.
The goal of the Framework is to increase the availability and quality of global renewable energy procurement opportunities, reduce transaction risk, assure unique ownership claims, and support the global market for high-quality, impact-focused renewable energy.
The Framework aims to provide robust, consistent guidance on all aspects of regional renewable energy certification requirements, including:
- Interaction of renewable energy purchasing and carbon policies
- Environmental sustainability criteria for renewable resource types
- Use of renewable energy tracking systems
- Renewable electricity that is produced beyond relevant mandates
- Support for new and upgraded renewable electricity generators
- Use of on-site generators
