This document, dated June 2016, provides basic information for Federal staff who are new to the concept of renewable energy and renewable energy certificates (RECs), and are seeking to better understand the options for using RECs to meet Federal renewable energy targets. This guide is intended to assist agencies in understanding the use of RECs to meet the statutory and Executive Order goals for renewable energy. It does not specifically address the process for agencies to report renewable energy consumption. Agencies should refer to the most recent Department of Energy reporting guidance2 for instructions on how to report renewable energy consumption. The document is issued by the Office of Federal Sustainability, Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ).
