How can we unlock the full potential of international RE certification?

Energy users have increasingly been using renewable energy certificates (RECs) to prove that the electricity they use comes from "green" power sources. This includes REC schemes established at national and local levels; and other mechanisms, such as International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs), that have increased use of this type of certification in other parts of the world.

We speak to Jared Braslawsky, managing director of the International Tracking Standard Foundation, about how the I-RECs market has grown and evolved since the organisation was founded in 2015. He shares his views on the successes and limitations of the current regime; how these types of certificates will evolve over the coming years, including with the growth of sustainable fuels; and the difference that certification can make to the energy transition.
