The International REC Standard (I-REC Standard) is a nonprofit foundation with the goal of empowering electricity purchasers with the ability to make renewable consumption choices in any region of the world. The I-REC Standard is not a market player and cannot help with the buying and selling of renewable electricity. Rather the I-REC Standard foundation facilitates the ability to purchase and sell renewable electiricty for consumers, traders, brokers, electricity suppliers, electricity generators and national governments. 


The I-REC Standard is based in the Netherlands. The work of the I-REC Standard is financed by individual donations and market players and local issuers who use the I-REC Standard attribute tracking system.
