Houston, TX – 9 May 2024 – Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners (“Quinbrook”), a specialist global investment manager focused exclusively on the infrastructure needed for the energy transition, today announced its support for The Granular Certificate (GC) Trading Alliance, a collaborative initiative convened by LevelTen Energy to spur the development of new clean energy resources and maximize the emissions impact of carbon-free energy procurement.

The GC Trading Alliance is supporting LevelTen Energy’s development of a first-of-its-kind trading and management platform for “granular certificates,” a type of energy attribute certificate that is stamped with a generation type, location, and hour of production, facilitating hourly matching of production and consumption.  This platform will facilitate easy access to around-the-clock CFE for buyers, allow for increased transparency in clean energy procurement, and incentivize clean energy production where and when it’s needed most, ensuring carbon-free grid reliability.

Quinbrook’s involvement with the GC Trading Alliance underscores our dedication to achieving decarbonization of power grids through the provision of 24/7 carbon free energy. Granular certificate markets will be a critical enabler of 24/7 outcomes for energy systems and related green commodities. LevelTen Energy is renowned for its cutting-edge energy transaction platform, and Quinbrook is proud to add its name to clean energy leaders that support the GC Trading Alliance. We look forward to working together to drive the entire sector towards a more accurate and efficient energy transition.

Senior Director for Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners

“The success of new markets, like the one for granular certificates, depends on the support of buyers, sellers, and everyone in between. Quinbrook’s dedication to advancing the clean energy industry through clean energy project development, as well as new software solutions for offtakers, makes them a welcome addition to the ecosystem that is forming around LevelTen’s GC trading platform,” said Katie Soroye, vice president of Granular Procurement Solutions, LevelTen Energy.

Quinbrook’s support for the GC Trading Alliance aligns with its recent launch of Quintrace, a new hourly tracking software designed to empower offtake customers with real-time visibility into their hourly carbon footprint while adhering to the latest carbon accounting standards for energy consumption, generation and storage. In addition, Quinbrook recently published a case study which demonstrated how battery energy storage can be used to claim granular discharge certificates from Registries for markets such as the LevelTen trading platform in the future.
