HOUSTON – September 13, 2019 – ENGIE North America will help the upcoming Smart Energy Decisions’ Renewable Energy Sourcing Forum walk its own talk by offsetting the event’s entire three days’ worth of energy consumption from nonrenewable sources with Green-e® eligible renewable energy certificates (RECs). ENGIE will supply and donate the RECs from ENGIE’s new 276 MW Solomon Forks Wind Project for this September 16-18 event in Ponte Vedra, Florida.
The announcement marks the fourth Smart Energy Decisions conference ENGIE North America has supported with RECs, further illustrating the energy leader’s commitment to promoting sustainable strategies. The RECs supplied for this event represent the environmental attributes or benefits associated with a specific quantity of renewable energy generated by the Solomon Forks Wind Project.
Ken Cowan, Vice President of Solutions Sales and Marketing at ENGIE North America, said, “We are helping our customers drive toward a zero-carbon energy future. Supplying electricity consumption offsets for this event is a great example of our environmentally responsible energy management solutions. We are proud to demonstrate our ability to provide customers with a wide range of renewable products that support a carbon-free, sustainable future.”
ENGIE North America’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. ENGIE North America integrates these capabilities with energy efficiency, information services, demand management, energy services and distributed generation opportunities to optimize supply, demand, and operations, and achieve energy management targets.
