The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) has released the Draft Green-e Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol for Renewable Energy and now seeks stakeholder comments.

This document establishes the eligibility requirements for Green-e certification of GHG emission reductions from renewable energy, the methodology used to calculate GHG emission reductions, and any other requirements related to tracking, prevention of double counting and double claiming, and verification.

The intent of the protocol is to bring additional credibility to the market for GHG reductions or offsets derived from renewable energy project activities, and to further the development of the voluntary market for renewable energy, CRS adds.

Stakeholder comments on the draft protocol are due by Aug. 21. The document is available at green-e.org/getcert_ghg_re_protocol.shtml
