The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) appointed WISE as an empanelled compliance auditor for the renewable energy certificate (REC) mechanism. The main scope of the project was to verify RE generators, audit the REC implementation process, synthesize and analyse the data, verify the information and documents submitted by the generators and prepare and submit the compliance report as per REC guidelines issued by CERC. The National Load Despatch Centre (NLDC) allotted six projects for REC compliance located in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and New Delhi, and included wind, solar PV, biomass and bagasse-based co-generation power projects.

WISE conducted a detailed audit of the identified RE generators and the REC implementation framework, including process audit of the National Load Despatch Centre (NLDC), New Delhi, the designated agency for REC implementation. WISE analysed the data and prepared the compliance report for each project.
