Renewable Identification Numbers 

—or RINs—drive investment in renewable fuel production facilities and significantly affect refiners’ compliance costs, but the RIN market is filled with market volatility and legal uncertainty. The energy economists at ESAI Energy have teamed up with the renewable fuel attorneys at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman to shed new light on RIN pricing with near and long-term forecasts that inform both trading and investment decisions through a comprehensive analysis of legal and economic factors that influence RIN prices.

The market for Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) under the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is one of the most volatile in the environmental credit and carbon markets but in all the energy commodity markets. 

How this benefits you.
