The I-REC Standard at the 2nd Argentina Energy Summit

Aug 24, 2022

The International REC Standard Foundation was pleased to attend the 2nd  Argentina Energy Summit that took place on 23-24 August 2022. The I-REC Standard was represented by Benjamin Herrera Vergara, Regional Director of LATAM. As a panelist, Benjamin spoke during Panel Discussion from 10:45-11:30 on the 24 August.

Benjamin talked a bit about the differences between I-RECs and carbon credits or green bonds; the profile of end-users buying I-RECs in Argentina and the growing development of the local I-REC market (already 17 devices registered). This conference provided a great opportunity to finally meet in person with parties we have been working with for the last couple of years.
