The global renewable energy certificate market was valued at USD 12.72 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 100.96 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a CAGR of 25.9% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The growth of the global renewable energy certificate market is driven by rising demand for the various types of power and the government policies that mandates a company to meet the required targets to use of renewable energy. The increased pollution levels, ozone layer depletion, and global warming are the major issues that compelled the governments across the globe to adopt certain policies in order to reduce carbon footprint. The acquisition of the renewable energy certificate implies that 1MWh of power or electricity is generated by using the eligible and specified source of renewable energy. The increased consciousness regarding the deteriorating conditions of the environment across the globe is a major driver of the global renewable certificate market. The burgeoning sales of the solar panels, micro hydro-power plants, and micro wind turbines are supplementing the growth of the renewable energy certificate market. The implementation of strict government regulations regarding the use of renewable energy sources is the most prominent factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global renewable energy certificate market.
The adoption of the micro hydro power plants is supported by the presence of canals, water streams, and various resources of flowing water. Moreover, the heavy investments in the innovations in the field of the communication technology and rising demand for reducing the GHG emissions is significantly fueling the demand for the renewable energy certificate. Further, rising investments in the development of hydro power plant that produces electricity of around 100 KW using flowing water sources is supplementing the market growth. The rising preference of the green energy is fostering the revenue generation through the trade of the renewable energy certificates across the globe. The growing focus of the consumers, government, and corporates on attaining sustainability is a major factor that plays a crucial role in the growth of the market across the globe.

Energy Type Insights
Based on the energy type, the solar energy segment dominated the market with largest revenue share in 2020. The solar power is obtained from the conversion of the solar heat into electricity. It is one of the most popular and essential source of renewable energy. Solar power is obtained from sunlight by either using concentrated solar energy or by photovoltaic. Photovoltaic is popular for the medium and small size applications. The growth of this segment is driven by the rising applications of the solar energy in a wider variety of products such as calculators and remotes. Further, the rising government initiatives and government investments to develop solar panels and increase its adoption across the globe has fueled the growth of this segment. The rising investments from the private sector to develop the solar power plants on large scale is expected to further foster the growth of the solar energy renewable energy certificate market across the globe.
Based on the capacity, the 5000 KWH segment dominated the global renewable certificate market in 2020, in terms of revenue. This is attributable to the rapidly growing number of wind and solar farms across the globe owing the rising demand for the renewable energy. The extensive usage of fossil fuels have resulted in its depletion and hence the demand for the various renewable energy sources is growing rapidly across the globe.
End Use Insights
Based on the end use, the compliance segment dominated the global renewable certificate market in 2020, in terms of revenue. This is simply attributed to the increased government initiatives to promote the adoption of green energy and implementation of regulations regarding meeting the targets of minimum level use of renewable energy.
