I'm working on a project located in Brazil.
The client already buys energy from a company with Renawable energy certification, which is appliable for this credit according to LEED ACP for Latin America. The language in ACP is as follow: "Projects in South America may use the Brazilian “Certificado de Energia Renovável” (Renewable
Energy Certificate) with additional parameters in place of Green-e Energy.".
The certificate issued by the energy provider states the reduction of CO2e for the period the energy has been purchased.
But I'm not sure it's enough to show compliance with this credit. Does anyone know what "additional parameters" means?
I understand that the client has to engage in a contract for 5 years with the energy provider.
Thanks in advance
