Like other voluntary programs, TIGRs can help support the development of renewable energy sources, connecting generators with companies seeking to support green energy. But buying TIGRs today in order to sell them at a higher price tomorrow is simply a bad idea and not why we created TIGRs. We will restrict most accounts to prevent speculative trading.
The markets for instruments like TIGRs are relatively complex. If you want to participate, unless you have experience with purchasing RECs or other environmental commodities, we strongly suggest you purchase through brokers and retailers. We will have a list of brokers and retailers available on our web site shortly.
Yes. At APX we understand that every country, and locality within a country, may have different renewable energy goals, regulations and incentives. TIGRs is intended to augment, rather than replace existing structures. We work with local governments as much as possible to ensure that TIGRs meet the needs of local regulators as well as corporates. To ensure ownership of a project’s environmental attributes, APX connects with local government agencies, non-governmental organizations and legal experts. APX has a long history of working with policy makers and we expect to continue such coordination so that they are part of the process and fully aware of the voluntary market.
