A total of 3.78 lakh non-solar renewable energy certificates (RECs) were traded at the India Energy Exchange (IEX) in July.
All buy bids were cleared at a floor price of Rs 1,500, IEX said in a statement.
“The session in July 2017 saw about 4 per cent increase in trade of non-solar RECs over April 2017 when 3,64,820 were traded and 172 per cent increase over July 2016 session when 1,39,250 traded,” it said.
