In coordination with two regional environmental tracking systems, the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) has launched the Environmental Tracking Network of North America (ETNNA), an organization for renewable energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions tracking systems and registries.

ETNNA will bring together electricity tracking systems, emissions registries, governmental regulators and interested market participants to promote the coordination and cooperation among environmental tracking systems throughout North America. Such coordination will encourage trade, create a common currency for certificates of generation, prevent double-counting, and support existing and emerging markets for renewable energy and GHG emissions.

"This is the first organization of its kind to offer a forum that brings together stakeholders and tracking systems covering this broad geographic scope - across the U.S., Canada and Mexico," says John Pappas, chairman of the Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System committee.
