Powertrust helps distributed renewable energy entrepreneurs access global climate finance via D-RECs, connecting high-impact projects across emerging markets with the world’s largest corporate energy buyers.
Find out if you can earn extra revenue for your projects from Powertrust.


Distributed Renewable Energy Certificates (D-RECs) are a new market instrument developed by the D-REC Initiative to create a global market for DRE. Denoted in kWhs, D-RECs enable even the smallest solar devices to participate in global environmental markets by supplying certificates to leading corporate renewable energy buyers. The world’s largest companies purchase D-RECs through Powertrust to match their energy demand in emerging markets with renewable sources, reducing emissions across their value chains while providing finance to new high-impact projects that are displacing the dirtiest fuels and powering schools, hospitals, factories, farms, and communities where it’s needed most.

Powertrust sources, certifies, and markets D-RECs from qualified project developers, providing a single point of contact for both developers and buyers, simplifying and streamlining the process from project selection to data collection, certification, delivery, payments, and reporting.

The D-REC Initiative is a not-for-profit, multi-stakeholder, industry-led initiative. Powertrust is co-leading the D-REC Initiative with South Pole, and the Initiative is supported by:
