Deregulation of the utility business causes the increase of Independent Power Producers (IPPs) entitled to open access to the grid and permits the customers to freely choose their suppliers. While retail competition is expected to exert pressures to reduce costs, new products and value-added services will also proliferate. Growing evidence, for example, suggests that some customers will be willing to pay a premium for environmentally preferable, or green, electricity products. The aim of this paper is to propose an environmental performance indicator provided during energy market transactions with MWh cost of the generation. This indicator reports the environmental impact relative to energy production evaluated through the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology and referred to a functional unit of generated energy.
