I-RECs for Electricity
The I-REC(E) Code
An I‑REC for electricity is referred to as I-REC(E) and is an exchangeable Energy Attribute Certificate (EAC) that conveys information about the production of a unit of electricity, such as where the electricity was produced, the capacity of the Production Facility, and the energy source. I‑REC(E)s can be used for a variety of (voluntary) requirements including Scope 2 reporting, national energy reporting, and general End-user claims, and allows all electricity users to make a conscious and evidence-based choice for electricity, in any country where service providers have been Accredited by the I-REC Standard Foundation. The use of I-REC(E)s is accepted by relevant consumer claim standards including the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, CDP, RE100 and others.
