EECS:RECS

EECS:RECS Issuing Body

GCC acted as an accredited Issuing Body since the formation of RECS and was a founding member of the Association of Issuing Bodies (AIB). In partnership with Ramboll, GCC was instrumental in developing the rules underlying the original RECS framework and the subsequent European Energy Certificate System (EECS) standard incorporating the European Guarantee of Origin. Following the closure of the EECS:RECS service at the end of 2014, GCC has now deployed the global I-REC standard, partnering with experts from around the world to deliver a flexible reporting mechanism for energy consumers.
