IMPORTANT DEADLINES:


REVISIONS TO THE RENEWABLE ENERGY ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

In October 2019, Gold Standard launched a standard update>> for Gold Standard for the Global Goals. One of the main updates featured was the new eligibility requirements for grid-connected renewable energy projects, to ensure funding goes to interventions most in need post-2020 when the Paris Agreement comes into force.

With effect from 24 January 2020, all grid-connected renewable energy projects submitted for certification, i.e. preliminary review, under Gold Standard for the Global Goals, will be required to demonstrate eligibility as per the requirements mentioned in Section 2.1.3 and Section 2.1.4 of the
Renewable Energy Activity Requirements>>

It should be noted that Gold Standard will not provide any exemptions to this deadline and encourages Project Developers to plan submissions accordingly.

This revision to the eligibility of renewable energy projects will not affect existing renewable energy projects (i.e. those that have been submitted already for preliminary review or those that have been design/performance certified) in the Gold Standard portfolio.

 

RULE UPDATE:

To provide further clarification on how renewable energy PoAs and VPAs/CPAs are impacted by the new eligibility requirements we have released a rule update. This update provides information on when the new eligibility requirements need to be applied to those PoAs that have reached registered, validated/listed and/or new status.
