Ruby Canyon Engineering (RCE) is a small but growing company working in the international greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and renewable energy industries. RCE provides a broad range of technical consulting services to companies wishing to conduct GHG inventories, report emissions to US EPA, and/or plan strategies for reducing their GHG emissions.  RCE engineers and environmental scientists combine a unique understanding of how GHG emission reduction methodologies, baselines, and inventories are developed for various registries, together with first-hand, technical knowledge of various types of projects that reduce GHG emissions. RCE received its ANSI accreditation under ISO 14065 (Requirements for Greenhouse Gas Validation and Verification Bodies) in October 2009.
