Northmore Gordon has registered over 6 million certificates over the last 10 years. REC are registered for two purposes:

Register and sell RECs for a faster return on investment by monetizing the renewable component of the energy separately from the energy. REC revenue can be as much as 50% of the ROI (provide as much value as the energy sold). Businesses (with behind-the-meter generation), investors (eg in Solar Farms), or developers (selling systems or developing biomass plants) use this to increase asset ROI.

A Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) is proof that 1MWh of electricity was generated by a renewable energy generator. Unbundled (or Decoupled or) from the electricity, RECs (LGCs, I-RECs) are registered and traded separately on international markets to corporations with renewable energy targets or compliance requirements.

Eligible renewable electrical energy generators include:

  • Wind, Solar, Hydro, and Geothermal
  • Biomass, and Biogas assets 

RECs are sold or spot or forward OTC global markets

  • LGCs are trading between AUD $ 35 – $ 80 (USD $25 – $50)
  • I-RECs and vary from USD $2 – $50 by region.

RECs can be surrendered (aka retired or redeemed) to meet renewable commitments including)

  • RE100 (Renewable Energy 100% initiative)
  • Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi)
  • Australian GreenPower (decoupled Greenpower LGCs)
  • Australian Climate Active Carbon Neutral program
  • Voluntary & Compliance renewable energy targets

REC Registration, trading and retirement requires accreditations, registry accounts, and trading networks.
