Clean Energy Trade Standard


Powerex Corp. is excited to announce that it has adopted a Clean Energy Trade Standard as of January 1, 2021. 

The new standard reflects Powerex’s commitment to transparently demonstrate that all of its clean electricity sales from the BC Hydro system represent 100% clean surplus supply.  With the adoption of this new standard, Powerex’s customers have assurance that Powerex’s clean wholesale electricity deliveries from the BC Hydro system are being provided in a manner that does not increase carbon emissions elsewhere in the western grid. 

In support of this effort, Powerex has developed the following white paper to describe the challenges to decarbonizing the western grid, and how its Clean Energy Trade Standard helps achieve this important objective.  The Powerex White Paper and Clean Energy Trade Standard  details the robust framework that will provide accountability for all imports and exports to and from the BC Hydro system, while also recognizing domestic generation sources and native load service.  

Further background can be found in Powerex’s 100% Clean Energy Standard Discussion Paper prepared in 2019.
