HOUSTON – June 13, 2018 – ENGIE is once again creating a better world through innovative energy solutions by supplying renewable energy certificates (RECs) to Smart Energy Decisions’ Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum to be held June 18-20 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego, California. The Green-e® certified RECs will offset 100 percent of the three-day event’s anticipated energy consumption, while helping to fund the development and operation of domestic sources of renewable energy.
The announcement marks the second Smart Energy Decisions conference ENGIE has supported with RECs in 2018, further illustrating the energy leader’s commitment to promoting sustainable strategies. The certificates supplied at each event represent the environmental attributes or benefits associated with a specific quantity of energy generated from a renewable source, such as wind or solar.
Ken Cowan, Vice President of Solutions Sales and Marketing at ENGIE North America, said, “As the demand for decarbonized energy continues to grow both nationally and globally, we are proud to demonstrate our ability to provide customers with a range of renewable products that support a more sustainable future. Our supply of RECs to Smart Energy Decisions is one of many opportunities we are incorporating into environmentally responsible energy management solutions, and we’re proud to support the Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum in this regard.”
ENGIE’s capabilities in renewable products span from RECs and green power supply to custom structured solutions and traditional and virtual power purchase agreements to support the development of new renewable generation assets. The Solutions Sales team integrates these capabilities with energy efficiency, information services, demand response, and distributed generation opportunities to optimize supply, demand, and operations and achieve energy management targets.
John Failla, Founder and Editor of Smart Energy Decisions, said, “We’re honored to have the continued backing of ENGIE – a leader in the world’s transformation to a low-carbon energy economy. Our aim at Smart Energy Decisions is to deliver the information and resources required to accelerate the adoption of sustainable solutions. ENGIE’s position in the market complements that commitment as we work to drive change in support of the energy transition taking shape in today’s power markets.”
The Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum is an invitation-only conference designed to help large energy users build and execute renewable energy sourcing strategies. The biannual event is operated by Smart Energy Decisions, a web-based information resource dedicated to delivering commercial and industrial consumers news, analysis, research, and opinions that drive more informed decisions.
