As the focus of the energy industry increasingly shifts to the environment and clean and renewable energy technologies, Gabel Associates has maintained its place as a cutting-edge innovator in the environmental sphere. Our renewable generation projects - solar, wind, landfill gas and others - include dozens of significant large-scale projects for a wide spectrum of clients.
Gabel Associates has been at the forefront of emerging markets for renewable energy certificates (RECs) and emission offsets, helping our clients transform their environmental resources into profitable revenue streams. We actively help clients offer SRECs and RECs for sale through a competitive solicitation process that brings the best value to our clients. The firm has been actively involved in the creation of those markets, serving on the Governor's Task Force for Renewable Energy that developed a strong market for RECs. We also worked on the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which created the first regional cap-and-trade program in the United States.
Our active participation in the regulatory and governmental sphere means we're aware of all current and pending regulatory and policy initiatives targeted at environmental impacts. These include regulations and policies like Clean Air Act requirements, NOx and CO2 cap and trade programs and Ozone Transport Commission rules, as well as the vast system of federal, state, and utility incentives that we find to make our clients' clean energy and efficiency projects profitable.
