    WHY:      Learn best practices on selling green credits from an
              experienced practitioner


    A wide variety of renewable energy and emission reduction projects are
providing companies with new revenue streams, especially in compliance
markets. However, given the immaturity of the green commodities market, how do
you know what to charge for your credits or offsets? Verdant Energy grappled
with this when traditional procurement methods produced offers that were less
than the desired benchmark price. As a result, Verdant conducted an auction on
the World Green Exchange, providing the power producer with an excellent price
discovery tool and securing a far better price than anticipated for the
company's carbon offsets.
