Renewable Energy Consumption Meter 2020

renewable
0%
American Tower Corporation Group currently sources 60% renewable electricity for its operations in India and South Africa. Additionally, for every MWh of renewable energy sourced by ATC, 20 eurocents goes towards its supported project to eliminate energy poverty by installing renewable energy devices in remote areas with no electricity.

The production of renewable electricity is certified by Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs). These are the accepted legal instrument through which claims of renewable energy generation and consumption are substantiated in the global renewable energy market. There are different types of EAC for different regions of the world, and they are all in compliance with the quality criteria set by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol in the latest Scope 2 guidance document.

Friedenheim

Friedenheim

Friedenheim on the Crocodile River in Mpumalanga Province, South Africa, is a small 2.5 MW hydro power plant. It was installed in 1987 and registered with RECSA in 2010. The site was chosen as there was an existing canal and penstock on the river, contributing to the lowering of the capital costs for the hydro station as well as avoiding any environmental impact.
