Renewable Energy Certificate
What is a Renewable Energy Certificate?
Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) is a certificate that represents delivery of 1 MWh of renewable energy to the grid and all associated environmental benefits of displacing 1 MWh of conventional power. RECs are sold separately from electricity. Companies wishing to meet sustainability goals may choose to purchase RECs as part of their renewable energy sourcing portfolio.
What is mGATS?
mGATS stands for Malaysia Green Attribute Tracking System launched in October 2019. It is a platform that enables interested buyers to pruchase RECs generated in Malaysia.
Why should I buy REC?
If you have a sustainability target, but green energy is not easily accessible in your area (i.e. difficulty in installing solar panels etc.), then REC is the easiest way to achieve that feat.
How many RECs should I buy?
If you require a percentage of your energy consumption to be green, you will need to buy REC equal to the desired percentage of your total energy consumption.
