The North American Renewables Registry™ (NAR) provides an easy-to-use, Web-based platform trusted to create, track, and manage renewable energy certificate (REC) origination for clean generation facilities and states not covered by one of the existing APX-powered, regional systems. All market participants are able to take advantage of a trusted infrastructure to help manage their role in the market. With the ability to create unique, serialized records for every REC, the Registry provides the greatest product transparency, accountability and protection against double counting.

NAR has been designated as the compliance system for the Missouri Renewable Energy Standard (RES). The State of North Carolina has also designated NAR as an eligible registry for facilities located outside of North Carolina that seek to qualify for the North Carolina’s Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard.  The Kansas Corporation Commission also uses NAR to verify RECs purchased by Kansas utilities and cooperatives for compliance with the Kansas Renewable Portfolio Standard. Most recently, the Northern Maine Independent System Administrator (NMISA) has chosen NAR as its tracking system.  With this addition, renewable energy facilities registered in NAR can now be tagged as eligible for Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, Maine and Puerto Rico if they have met the applicable requirements as a renewable facility. Furthermore, NAR is currently able to export certificates to NC RETS and NEPOOL-GIS and accept imports of certificates from ERCOT, WREGIS, MIRECS, M-RETS and NC RETS. Learn more…
