ATLANTA, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third consecutive year, GDF SUEZ Energy Resources NA will supply renewable energy certificates (RECs) to the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) for the 2012 Globalcon Conference & Expo.
The RECs, which will be Green-e® Energy Certified, are targeted to match the electricity consumed during the two-day expo, which is being held March 7-8 at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, N.J. A Green-e® Certified REC represents the environmental attributes of electricity generated from wind, solar, or other renewable generation facilities that meet certain vintage and production standards.
Organizations may use RECs to offset their indirect greenhouse gas emissions and help support the operation and development of domestic sources of clean, renewable energy. The RECs that GDF SUEZ Energy Resources will provide will displace an estimated 171,740 pounds of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of taking 15 cars off the road for a year."We're proud to continue our support of the Association of Energy Engineers and its commitment to clean energy," said David Coffman, V.P. of Marketing for GDF SUEZ Energy Resources. "This is an opportunity to further cement our relationship with AEE and Globalcon and to demonstrate that we share its dedication to pursuing environmentally responsible policies that promote the use of renewables." Globalcon 2012 is aimed at decision-makers from business, industry, and government who are seeking energy solutions that assure a safe, secure power supply and effective management of costs. Attendees can visit the GDF SUEZ Energy Resources booth, No. 515, to see how the company can assist them with those concerns, including strategies for mitigating commodity market risks, managing demand and consumption, and maximizing the opportunities of a competitive energy marketplace.
