Originally Aired on May 21, 2014
Renewable energy markets in the U.S. increasingly rely upon tracking systems—regional electronic databases that allow stakeholders to manage their portfolio of renewable energy certificates (RECs) that confer environmental benefits and act as proof of generation.

Join Amy Fredregill, Executive Director of the Midwest Renewable Energy Tracking System (M-RETS), and CRS Senior Project Manager Rachael Terada in an overview of how tracking systems work, what's in a REC, and an inside look at M-RETS.
