Meet us at the REC Market Meeting

16.01.2018

The REC Market Meeting is an annual conference of companies, agencies and other stakeholders active on the renewable energy market. To get an impression of last year’s edition, see the video here.

EKOenergy is proud and happy to be one of the supporting organizations of REC Market Meeting 2018. This year’s conference will be held on 13 and 14 March in Amsterdam.

For those who have been following us, this partnership doesn’t come as a surprise. We have been cooperating since the very start. In 2012, the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation got the opportunity to present its plan for a ‘pan-European ecolabel for electricity’ at the second edition of the REC Market Meeting. It was one of the first consultation meetings of the process that has led to the EKOenergy label.

In 2013, the organisers of the REC Market Meeting gave us a session to present the newly launched EKOenergy ecolabel. In the years thereafter, EKOenergy representatives have moderated sessions and made other contributions.

There are also nice parallels between EKOenergy’s development and that of the REC Market Meeting: both the REC Market Meeting and EKOenergy have become bigger, more international and more consumer-oriented from year to year. Both of us are also gradually broadening the scope of our work: in the beginning the focus was exclusively on electricity, but the appetite for other types of energy is growing.

We are very honoured to see our name in the same list as companies such as ECOHZ, Statkraft and Fortum, and organisations including the RE100, CDP, the I-REC Standard and the AIB.

This year it will be the 8th edition of the conference. Click here for the REC Market Meeting 2018 Programme.

EKOenergy is involved in the organisation of one of the preconference sessions. And Merve Güngör from EKOenergy Secretariat will moderate a session on energy tracking in China. The session will focus on how the newly launched Chinese REC-system will interact with the already existing renewable energy contracts, which are mainly based on I-REC certificates.
