Green Power Procurement: Understanding the Options

September 28, 2016


Green power procurement is a key feature of corporate sustainable energy strategies. In ‘Green Power Procurement: Understanding the Options’, WSP’s Sustainability & Energy team highlights seven options for green power procurement, and the benefits and considerations for each option. These include:

1. Owned On-Site Generation
2. Off-Site Generation
3. On-Site Power Purchase Agreement / Operating Lease
4. Power Purchase Agreements
5. Synthetic Power Purchase Agreements
6. Utility Products / Green Tariffs
7. Unbundled Renewable Energy Certificates

Procuring green power – a subset of renewable energy – may offer benefits such as renewable energy certificates (RECs) as well as revenues from the sale of power generated on-site.
