Achieving net zero is a major consideration for all parts of the economy. Energy producers and traders, utilities, energy intensive consumers, retail energy customers and investors are considering means to mitigate exposure to fossil fuels and carbon-intensive energy.

Energy attributes certificates and associated schemes — including guarantees of origin in Europe, national renewable energy certificates schemes and globally traded International Renewable Energy Certificates — enable the documentation of renewable energy supply through the value chain. The certificate acts as a premium to the energy cost, guaranteeing supply originates from a desired non-carbon-emitting source.
