Renewable Energy Solutions

Energy attribute certificates (EACs) each track 1 MWh of renewable energy from production through to consumption and retirement on third-party registries, to reliably evidence your renewable energy claim.

Clients do not typically select EACs from individual projects, but rather by technology, proximity to electricity consumption, as well as the age and size of the power plants and the vintage of the electricity.

Companies can build a portfolio of EACs from around the world to address their Scope 1 and 2 emissions as part of a carbon neutral programme.

  Renewable Energy Scope 1 and 2

Scope 1

Companies with operations in the UK now have a cost-effective, quality solution to address direct emissions from gas used to power their facilities: Natural Capital Partners offers clients the opportunity to purchase Green Gas Certificates to address their Scope 1 emissions with renewable power.

Scope 2

We deliver a wide range of renewable energy solutions to meet our clients’ requirements for high-quality, global energy attribute certificates which match their consumption, including Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in North America, Guarantees of Origin (GOs) in Europe, and Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) in the UK. For companies with operations across the rest of the world, we offer International RECs (I-RECs), Tradable Instruments for Global Renewables (TIGRs) and PowerPlus™.

We are also licensed to sell Green-e Energy and EKOenergy certified energy attribute certificates, which add additional quality criteria to your renewable energy claim.

Further details are available on our Renewable Energy Solutions page as well as in the Standards section.
