Renewable Energy Credits

Our experience spans all Renewable Energy Credit markets.


Element Markets’ entrance and expansion in the environmental markets has coincided with the rapid expansion of Renewable Portfolio Standards across the country, and Element Markets has leveraged our depth of experience and proficiency at all state and federal levels to meet the renewable credit needs of our clients—buyers and sellers.

    Key Points

  • Renewable Energy Credit Focus

    Element Markets has demonstrated leadership in the Renewable Energy Credit markets over the last decade, having transacted over 30,000,000 RECs since inception. Our activity in the marketplace includes offtake agreements from biogas and biomass projects that generate both voluntary and compliance RECs.

  • Turn Key Services for REC Optimization

    Element Markets utilizes its experience and relationships to provide asset management to renewable energy projects that need a turn-key REC optimization service. We handle everything from credit generation to the sale of credits and ensure that the credits are qualified in the market that will realize the most value for our clients.

  • Leading Marketer of Biogas to Renewable Electricity

    Our collective technical and marketing expertise and understanding of all intersections of value enables us to deliver biogas to clients to meet voluntary and compliance mandates. Beyond bringing biogas to market, we are able to execute all contracts; manage transport logistics and delivery; and administer the entire back office function on behalf of our clients, a critical yet cumbersome process that frees you to focus on your core business.
