Singapore Power Group (SP Group) has launched a marketplace that will allow businesses to buy and sell renewable energy credits (REC).

SP Group’s marketplace gathers RECs from across multiple geographies. It also supports different supply options including types of sellers and renewable energy sources.

Examples of green energy companies which have already signed up for the platform include solar developers Cleantech Solar Asia and LYS Energy Solutions.

Katoen Natie Singapore, a global chemical logistics company who will be launching Singapore’s largest single unit rooftop solar facility at a warehouse, has also come onboard as a REC seller.

City Developments Limited (CDL) and DBS Bank (DBS) are among the first few buyers in the marketplace.

The platform is powered by blockchain, which ensures that all transactions are transparent, secure and can be easily traced.

The launch of the SP REC marketplace is in line with Singapore’s low carbon targets, as part of its Paris COP-21 agreement.
