energy attributed certificates (eacs)

Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs) follow a lifecycle and have a maximum lifetime of one year. They are used for documenting and tracking the exact location where the renewable energy is produced.

There are several EAC markets like the Guarantees of Origin system in Europe and the Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in the USA. These certificates can be traded on those secondary markets but not across different EAC schemes.
