What are international renewable energy markets for C&I buyers?

Renewable energy markets have developed internationally as a result of globalization, market volatility, climate action demands, and updates to the GHG Protocol’s Scope 2 Guidance. As it has become increasingly important for C&I buyers to source global products from the same geographic grid region where their electricity is consumed, markets worldwide have responded with credible EACs, PPAs, and carbon offsets.

Where are international renewable energy markets developing?

All over the world. Mexico and India are on the forefront of emerging international markets, thanks to available incentives and timeline constraints.  Opportunity is also growing across Europe, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Taiwan, Australia, Brazil, and Turkey.

What clean technologies are available in international markets?

Credible sources of energy attribute certificates (EACs) and power purchase agreements (PPAs) are available across the globe. Examples of international EACs include GOs in Europe, CELs in Mexico, and I-RECs in Latin America and Asia.  GoldPower® and GreenPower® are other reliable clean technologies, and TIGRs have emerged in Singapore.  Carbon offsets can be sourced from projects on every continent.
