THE PROBLEM

Zero or Bust!

Energy is the biggest problem of all in the climate crisis

73%

of greenhouse gases causing global warming are emitted by energy production or consumption

Zero or Bust!-iconZero or Bust!

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

Prove Your Zero Impact-iconProve Your Zero Impact

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

OUR SOLUTION

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

A PRIMER

Renewable Energy Certificates

The secret ingredient to changing energy related behaviours

card-image
What are Renewable Energy Certificates?

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.

Why do we need RECs?

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.

What’s the difference between
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

Green NFTs-iconGreen NFTs
RECs are special kind of Non-Fungible-Token that represent
  • 1 MWh of clean energy
  • produced by a specific facility
  • in a specific time frame
Transferable-iconTransferable

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

Can be "Locked"-iconCan be "Locked"

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”

Fractionalizable-iconFractionalizable

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

Composable-iconComposable

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

Programmable-iconProgrammable

Use tokenized RECs in your web2 or web3 applications with our easy to use, developer friendly API, and have your users decarbonize their operations
