Renewable Energy Certificates

Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are a tradable instrument that represents the environmental and social benefits associated with the production of renewable energy. They are created when 1 MWh of electricity is generated from a renewable energy source, such as wind, solar, bio, or hydropower and represents one of the following: Guarantee of Origin, I-REC, or REGO. 

Many governments also implement local scheme certificates to accelerate and fulfill their renewable ambitions.

RECs are often used to demonstrate compliance with renewable energy mandates, such as state or national Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), or to support corporate sustainability goals. The purchase of RECs can also help to increase demand for renewable energy and encourage further investment in renewable energy infrastructure.

ARM is a market maker on all these certificates and we provide pricing and market information to our clients.

Carbon Emissions

Carbon credits are a tradable instrument that represents a reduction or removal of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. They are created when a project or activity reduces GHG emissions below a predetermined baseline, and the reduction is certified and verified by an independent third party.

Carbon credits play an important role in incentivising emission reduction activities and supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. The sale of carbon credits can provide additional revenue streams for emission reduction projects, making them more financially viable. At the same time, the purchase of carbon credits allows companies and individuals to take responsibility for their carbon emissions and support sustainable development initiatives.

ARM offers direct access to the carbon market. We help corporate and industrial clients with offsetting their carbon needs by taking into account their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Voluntary Emission Offsetting (VER).

Bio Fuels, Bio Gas & Bio Methane

Biofuels, biogas, and biomethane are all renewable energy sources derived from organic matter. They are produced through different processes and have varying properties.

Biofuels are fuels made from organic matter, such as crops, wood, or waste. There are two main types of biofuels: bioethanol and biodiesel. Bioethanol is made from the fermentation of sugars or starches, typically from crops such as corn or sugarcane. Biodiesel, on the other hand, is made from the oils extracted from crops such as soybeans, rapeseed, or palm.

Biogas is produced through the anaerobic digestion of organic matter, such as agricultural waste, food waste, or sewage. The process produces a mixture of gases, including methane, carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases. Biogas can be used as a fuel for heating or electricity generation, or it can be upgraded to biomethane.

Biomethane is a renewable gas produced through the upgrading of biogas. The upgrading process removes impurities and increases the methane content, resulting in a gas that is similar in quality to natural gas. Biomethane can be used as a renewable gas for heating, transportation, or injection into the natural gas grid.

All three of these bio-based energy sources have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to a more sustainable energy system. However, their availability, cost-effectiveness, and environmental impacts can vary depending on the source material, production process, and end use.

ARM helps their clients not only with the bio-tickets/ certificates but also facilitates the transaction of the physical product.
