ACORE Executive Roundtable: Leveraging Corporate Commitments to Drive the Renewable Energy Economy
Oct 11, 2017
This roundtable meeting will convene corporate purchasers and renewable developers to identify ways to leverage corporate renewable energy commitments to (1) increase business deployment of renewable energy and (2) drive the renewable energy economy.
As C&I procurement of renewable energy becomes increasingly mainstream, companies are seeking new ways to double down on their renewable energy commitments and to maximize the overall effect on market dynamics. This meeting will identify strategies to go above and beyond initial sustainability and procurement commitments and seek pathways that will formalize renewable energy use as a business decision, including:
- Identifying challenges that are impeding corporate adoption of renewables as well as emerging options that will allow for a broader range of participants and increased deployment
- Creating a platform that allows companies that are similarly committed to renewable energy to do business together, e.g. giving preference for upstream products and services that are created or powered by renewable energy
