WBCSD Corporate Renewable PPAs Scaling up globally

Using PPAs to procure renewable energy is becoming more and more standard practice. The World Business Council for Sustainable Development has now released a new report that guides companies through the process of procuring renewable power via Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).

RECS International is happy to see continued developments in this field. RECS International agrees that PPAs need to be coupled with attribute tracking certificates (RECs, GOs or I-RECs) to ensure the information about the delivered electricity is reliably and transparently disclosed. Without attribute tracking certificates PPAs remain private and often unstandardized contracts. Continued standardization and development in the use of attribute tracking certificates will simplify PPAs and make them more accessible to smaller organizations.

Press release: Norway is placing the consumer-driven market for renewable electricity under threat

In recent days the Norwegian Minister of Petroleum and Energy has questioned the role of a consumer-driven electricity market in Norway based on the EU system of Guarantees of Origin. Seen in light of official signals in a review of energy policies to be discussed in the Norwegian Parliament in June, this raises concerns. The Norwegian authorities are investigating abandoning the consumer-driven system for renewables in favour of a production-based system. RECS International calls on all stakeholders in Norway to protect consumer choice and begin a dialogue over these issues, which affect consumers in Norway and around the EU.

Press Release_The European Court of Justice has ruled against Aland Vindkraft.

The ruling in favour of the Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten) in the case of Åland Vindkraft AB v. Energimyndigheten was not in line with the earlier opinion of the Advocate General. This outcome allows protectionist national electricity support schemes to continue, thus encouraging producers to go for the highest subsidies instead of the most cost-efficient generation. RECS International is concerned that the cost-efficient generation of renewable energy will be slowed down, making it harder for the much-needed energy transition to take place across Europe. By restricting international competition, this ruling will also keep the cost of support for European renewables high and reduce the competitiveness of European industries. RECS International believes that consumers will ultimately pay the price for this decision in the form of higher taxes, tariffs and fees, when the alternative was to promote cheap renewable power that is generated where it is most efficient to do so.

Report: Renewables Incentives - Approaching Maturity 4th ed. Clifford Chance

The last few years have seen a turbulent time for the renewable energy sector. 2013 figures show that global investment in renewables fell significantly in both 2012 and 2013. Continuing global economic problems and uncertainty over renewable policy frameworks in key countries take a significant share of the blame. In particular, retroactive reductions in incentives in a number of European countries (in the solar sector) have caused investors to be extremely cautious about the stability of financial support mechanisms.....

DLA Piper_Release_ECJ Case on Cross-border Participation in Renewable Energy Support Schemes - Free and Last?

On 28 January 2014, the European Court of Justice's Advocate General (AG) Yves Bot delivered a strong opinion in favour of cross-border participation in support schemes for renewable energy generation. If followed by the Court, it would result in a fundamental paradigm shift in European renewable energy support, with great opportunities but also challenges. In this note, we explain the facts, the issues, the ruling and the implications for renewable energy trade and support in Europe.
