more sides of the problem
Zero or Bust!
Business as usual is unacceptable. The world is not on track to stay under 1.5°C warming
Add More Zeros
The adoption rate of renewables is too slow, despite significant cost reductions and technological advances
Prove Your Zero Impact
Reporting proof of carbon-free operations is complicated, burdensome and expensive
Join our Mission to Zero Emissions
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!
We provide Digital Renewable Energy as a service, making it super simple for everyone, businesses and individuals, everywhere in the world, to buy renewable energy and prove it
Decarbonize & Prove it
We make it easy to decarbonize your operations and lives: programmatically through our friendly API, or via simple point-and-click web services.
Our easy-to-understand and automatically generated Green Proofs will help you communicate your impact to the world and enable anyone to verify it
Trust the trustless blockchain and the sustainability standards
We digitize Renewable Energy Certificates, enabling anyone to verify that the claims are real and follow industry best practices and sustainability reporting standards.
Feel safe that you are making an impact that is both real and provable
Non-zero facts about our system
Renewable Energy Certificates
The secret ingredient to changing energy related behaviours
What are Renewable Energy Certificates?
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are standardized, 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 where it went to. 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 that you own that green electron and that your electricity comes from renewable sources.
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 digitized
Renewable Energy Certificates
RECs of 1 MWh - which is a large amount - can now be divided into 1 million fractions, providing greater resolution and enabling new types of smaller buyers and the emergence of disruptive applications to decarbonize the world
Digital RECs become a programmable building block that you can easily integrate with our developer friendly API. Embed renewable energy into your app or software, to decarbonize it, or create new green-first products and services
By embracing the creativity of programmable decarbonization, you can create new products and services, and open up new business opportunities for your company
