Zero or Bust!
Energy is the biggest problem of all in the climate crisis
of greenhouse gases causing global warming are emitted by energy production or consumptionsource world in data
of global energy is still being produced with fossil fuelssource REN21
Business as usual is unacceptable. The world is not on track to stay under 1.5°C warming
The adoption rate of renewables is too slow, despite significant cost reductions and technological advances
Reporting proof of carbon-free operations is burdensome and reliant on centralized trustfull setups
We need to change the current path!
At Zero Labs we research and build tools that will create new behaviours around renewable energy and the regenerative economy
Less is more, but Zero is better!
At Zero Labs, we build radically accessible and transparent tools for programming decarbonization into business and household operations alike

Non-zero facts about our system
Renewable Energy Certificates
The secret ingredient to changing energy related behaviours
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are tradable, non-tangible energy certificates that represent proof that 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was generated from an eligible renewable energy resource or power plant.
Once an electron has been added to the electric grid, there is no way to know from where it came. Renewable Energy Certificates represent the verified amount of clean electricity that has been added in a specific period; therefore RECs are the only way to prove your electricity green.
RECs and Carbon Offsets?
RECs prove that a certain amount of electricity consumed was green, and carbon credits represent a project, somewhere in the world, whose activities reduced emissions or enhanced greenhouse gas (GHG) removal from the atmosphere. RECs are special because they incentivize the adoption of renewable energy while carbon offsets redirect the sustainability effort to external projects
The superpowers of tokenized
Renewable Energy Certificates
- 1 MWh of clean energy
- produced by a specific facility
- in a specific time frame
RECs can be bought and sold, they can be transferred, powering new on chain market dynamics. Buyers and sellers will soon be able to engage in our upcoming marketplace
Once locked only the final holder will be forever the owner, they won’t be able to sell it or transfer it again. The official term is that a certificate is “redeemed”, “claimed, or “canceled”
RECs of 1 MWh can be divided into 1000 NFTs of 1 KWh each or less, which provides greater resolution on the temporal energy consumption accounting and enabling new user to decarbonize their operations
Full RECs or fractions can also be bundled together into baskets and used as a composable block in decetralized finance and as a new asset to diversify your portfolio
Use tokenized RECs in your web2 or web3 applications with our easy to use, developer friendly API, and have your users decarbonize their operations
