CRS Updates Green-e Energy National Standard

July 2010 - The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) has updated the Green-e Energy National Standard. The Standard defines eligibility and requirements for Green-e Energy Certified Projects. The majority of changes will go into effect July 15, 2011. Major changes include: changing the "new date" of the renewable energy generating facility from 1997 to 15 years before the year of the sale; requiring hydropower facilities to be certified by the Low Impact Hydropower Institute (U.S. facilities) or EcoLogo (Canadian facilities); and making all renewable energy generators located within the boundaries of a cap-and-trade program ineligible for Green-e Certification unless a specific mechanism exists to maintain the carbon avoidance value of renewable generation under the cap.
