Renewable electricity acquisition has been on the rise worldwide due to environmental and economic factors. Many C&I buyers are interested in the “additionality” of their purchase—whether their action caused more renewable energy to be added to the grid. This paper examines the intersection of energy attribute certificates (EACs) such as RECs and additionality, and will seek to clarify their relation in the modern energy landscape.
