GoNetZero™ celebrates launch in Brazil by retiring RECs for I-REC Brazil day attendees

Singapore, March 31, 2023

GoNetZero™, in collaboration with CGN Brasil Energia and Órigo Energia, has successfully retired I-RECs on behalf of the I-REC Brazil Day attendees. The retired I-RECs represent the average electricity consumption of a household in Brazil in 2021 and 2022.

Leveraging our digital platform, we efficiently implemented I-RECs retirement at scale. To ensure transparency, all conference attendees received a certificate of I-REC retirement with the verification code for Evident’s website, which verifies that their RECs have indeed been retired in their name.

Delighted attendees displayed their I-RECs certificate proudly on social media to showcase their commitment to a green energy future.

Collaboration with Instituto Totum to Scale the Renewable Energy Certificate Market in Brazil

GoNetZero™ has successfully launched our blockchain-powered digital platform for trading Brazil International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-REC) at the first-ever I-REC Day Brazil in São Paulo. The launch was made possible by collaborating with Instituto Totum, the authorised local issuer of I-REC in Brazil, to integrate the digital platforms of Instituto Totum and GoNetZero™.

This allows us to support Brazil's fast-growing renewable energy certificates (RECs) market, which doubled in volume from the year before to 22 million. Brazil's renewable energy generators can now list their I-REC for sale on GoNetZero™’s platform upon issuance by Instituto Totum, allowing them to reach our global network of buyers.
