Description

Description Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) is helping grow large buyer demand for renewable power and helping utilities and others meet it. Energy buyers like corporations, cities, and public institutions want to power their operations with clean energy but navigating the path to renewables in the US and international markets is harder than it should be. REBA exists to make the transition easier by helping companies understand the benefits of moving to renewables, connecting large buyer demand to renewable energy supply, and helping utilities better understand and serve the needs of all energy buyers.
Objectives The goal is to help corporations purchase 60GW of additional renewable energy in the US by 2025, growing the total amount of non-hydro renewables on the U.S. grid by more than 50%, from 107 GW in 2015.
Activities A new collaborative of manufacturers, state and local governments, and environmental organizations launched today at the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance Summit to increase options for access to sustainable, cost-competitive renewable thermal energy. The second REBA summit (2017 Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance Summit) gathered 400 energy buyers, service providers, developers, financiers, non-profit organizations and utilities in Santa Clara, CA, September 17-19 to identify opportunities to accelerate procurement of renewable energy. The conferences are organised by VERGE, a global conference and expo series launched in 2011 focusing on the technologies and systems that accelerate sustainability solutions across sectors in a climate-constrained world. The flagship conference takes place annually in Silicon Valley.
One or two success stories achieved 10 GW of corporate PPAs signed and 22+ utility green tariffs offering RE to large customers as of end of 2017
