New Renewable Electricity Offering: TIGRs

05 September 2016 |

Natural Capital Partners now offers the newest solution for clients looking to achieve 100% renewable electricity sourcing in countries where Guarantees of Origin or Renewable Energy Certificates are not available: Tradable Instruments for Global Renewables, or TIGRs.

The TIGRs Registry has been launched to support the issuance, tracking and retirement of this new type of renewable electricity instrument, providing an ideal solution for businesses wanting to support renewable energy generation in all the countries where they have operations.

Natural Capital Partners is registered to transact TIGRs on the Registry and can offer them to clients to meet their renewable electricity targets in a credible and transparent way. TIGRs will support renewable energy consumption claims in markets outside North America and Europe, where renewable electricity instrument infrastructure is well established and certificates are readily available.

TIGRs recognise the environmental benefits associated with each MWh of renewable power and can be sold on their own or bundled with the underlying electricity. They add to the global portfolio of renewable energy instruments available to businesses through Natural Capital Partners.

Oliver Crouch, Chief Product Officer for Natural Capital Partners, said: “This is an exciting expansion of the infrastructure used to demonstrate renewable electricity consumption. Businesses are demanding international products to support their renewables goals and we are delighted to be able to deliver TIGR instruments on the APX platform. Natural Capital Partners has been working with APX for more than 10 years and we look forward to collaborating to take international renewable electricity markets to the next level.”

TIGRs offer a solution for companies with international operations, enabling them to demonstrate their global commitment to renewable electricity sourcing. The initial focus will be on projects in Asia and Latin America, with the first pilot in Singapore.

APX already operates over 13 renewable and carbon registries worldwide and will ensure the quality of TIGRs through the implementation of their standard for validating renewable energy assets. TIGRs and the Registry will meet all Scope 2 Quality Criteria for contractual instruments as outlined in the GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance.
