Renewable generators: Products and services

As one of the World’s largest aggregators of independent energy generation, SmartestEnergy has years of experience in supporting renewable generators and businesses to realise both their short- and long-term energy strategies. We’re also one of the largest buyers and sellers of renewable certificates in the UK and across Europe.

This international experience, combined with the local expertise of our Australian trading team, means that we’re the ideal partner for renewable energy generators across Australia. And with many businesses looking to procure renewable energy in order to achieve RE100 and net zero goals, we’re making it easier for them to secure renewable power.

We don’t own any of our own generation assets, so you can rest assured that we’re acting in the best interests of all involved. With our ability to innovate and structure agreements based on your unique needs we’re the perfect partner to help you to realise your renewable energy project goals.

Power Purchase Agreements

We’ll help you to find the best way to sell your renewable power and certificates and maximise your revenues, from a fixed price for protection against market fluctuations to more structured market access solutions.

We provide generation services to you as our customer, not a counterparty, which means we can manage AEMO and CER requirements on your behalf as a registered market participant if required.

Feed-in Tariff

Sell any excess energy that you generate to the grid and receive payment through a credit on your energy bill from us.

We’re totally transparent around prices - the price that we pay is the spot market rate for the period that you export energy to the grid - so you can trust that you’re getting paid fairly.

Environmental Certificate Services

We have a well established trading desk with access to each certificate brokerage, which gives us the capability to buy and sell a range of environmental certificates on the spot and forward markets.

We can buy, sell, create or pass through LGCs, STCs, ESCs and VEECs.

Storage Asset Tolling

Monetise your flexible storage or generation asset through tolling arrangements with us.
