Renewable Energy Certificates
Renewable Energy Certificates are instrumental in ensuring that the value of electricity from wind, solar, biomass, and other renewable sources, becomes tangible and is realized. Guarantees of Origin (Including RECs, I-RECs, REGOs, GOs) are a tradeable commodity and are the only widely recognized instruments guaranteeing the renewable credentials of electricity supplied. Whether your needs are for voluntary purposes or compliance markets, our specialists will guide you through available options, giving you improved market visibility, and enabling you to make better-informed decisions.
Energy Efficiency Certificates
Several countries have implemented innovative energy efficiency initiatives that encourage both the residential and industrial sectors to conserve power wherever possible. These certificates are issued as evidence that a certain percentage of energy savings has been achieved relative to a projected baseline. They have now become tradable instruments in some European countries (i.e. Italy, Poland, and France).
Solid, liquid or gaseous fuels can be produced from organic matter to provide a waste-derived renewable energy source, this is called biofuel. They can be used to generate electricity, or blended with existing fuels such as gasoline and diesel. As the decarbonization of transport, aviation and maritime become ever more pressing, countries are introducing blending obligations to stimulate the development of these alternative technologies. With Biofuels playing an increasingly important role in developing a sustainable, low carbon economy, STX Commodities is a principal counterparty in physical biofuels, feedstocks and blending obligation certificates.
