A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in renewable energy: The 24/7 RECs | Time-of-Day Dispatch and Carbon Implications for Renewable Energy Procurement free webinar on October 11.
Voluntary renewable energy markets have grown as corporates try to address their Scope 2 emissions. However, the amount of carbon displaced by renewable energy generation on the electrical grid varies widely based on the location and time of day. In general, there are two ways to account for the carbon displaced by renewable energy – using an annual, regional marginal grid emissions factor or the more temporally and geographically precise marginal emissions data. Efforts are now underway to improve the quantification of the amount of carbon displaced by renewable energy so as to provide more informative and instructive corporate accounting as renewable energy procurement options expand and play an increasingly important role in transitioning to a net zero economy. However, this accounting is complicated and nuanced. Join us for a background on this emerging topic and a lively discussion of the how and why behind this new initiative.
This event will be moderated by Anew’s Caroline Gentry. Panelists to include representatives from M-RETS, Center for Resource Solutions, Entergy, EnergyTag, and WattTime.
