lock Information about the REC Market Meeting 2018

This news item contains members only information regarding the REC Market Meeting in 2018. Public announcement will follow later this year. 

Dear RECS International Members,

As you many of you are aware the secretariat of RECS International has started preparations for the 8th edition of our annual event. With this quick letter we would like to inform you of some of the steps that have been taken in organizing the event, before we make any official public announcement.

Name of the event

As many of you may have noticed there has been a slight change in the name of the event. Looking at international trends in the development of attribute tracking systems we will only slightly change the name of the event to the REC Market Meeting. We are also working with a new payoff for the event: “Global expert meeting on energy tracking systems”.

Date and Venue

The event is organized for March 12-14, 2018. It will again be organized in Amsterdam at the Krasnapolsky Hotel. Discounted rooms will be available later this year for attendees of the event. It is the intention to have the pre-conferences on March 12 with the main conference taking place on March 13 and 14.

Initial program ideas and calls for abstracts

This year we will organize a call for abstracts. It is our expectation that we will release a survey for the abstracts in August or September. However we are also working with some initial program ideas, including:

  • Keynote session on global policy development
  • Keynote session on European policy changes
  • A session on Green Gas and Hydrogen GOs
  • A session on the development of blockchain and interactions with RE markets
  • Multiple sessions on developing tracking systems internationally including: Japan, China, UAE, Brazil, India, Singapore and others


In 2018 we will increase our outreach and communication efforts. There will be the possibility to follow the REC Market Meeting on Twitter: #RMM2018 and @RMM2018. We will also update on the LinkedIn REC Market Meeting company page.
