Global voluntary markets for renewable energy are increasing in size year on year and they expand further as corporate, national, and international stakeholders set their targets and procurement strategies.

EnergyOrigins.net is a free source of information and data on Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) schemes and related energy statistics. It is compiled by Entelios GmbH – a part of Agder Energi, located in Berlin, Germany.

Our website provides an insight into several such certificate schemes whilst highlighting market drivers, green power products and regulatory updates.

Statistics and schemes are updated on an ongoing basis.

With the regulatory blog which is provided by DLA Piper you have access to the current topics relevant to green certificate markets.

Within the System and Updates page you will also find some of the standard contracts which are used within the industry for reference, together with an introduction to the RECS International Good Practice Guidelines.

You can get in touch via email, twitter or LinkedIn.
