The North American Renewables Registry™ (NAR) provides an easy-to-use, Web-based platform trusted to create, track, and manage all renewable energy purchases and their associated renewable energy certificates (RECs). Any clean energy generation facilities in states and provinces not covered by one of the existing APX-powered, regional systems utilize NAR. NAR is the adopted system of record to create unique, serialized records for every REC and tracks the renewable energy attribute from issuance to the facility, transfer and ultimate retirement for voluntary or compliance purposes. NAR is also capable of importing or exporting from a variety of other REC tracking systems. Our clients have piece of mind relying on NAR for transparency, renewable energy reporting and protection against double counting.
NAR for Voluntary Sustainability Programs
With Green-e now requiring the use of a renewable energy generation tracking registry for all voluntary purchases in the US and Canada, NAR is the ideal way to purchase renewable energy.
For voluntary renewable energy tracking outside the United States and Canada companies use the TIGR Registry
NAR for Compliance Programs
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…
