Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance Summit
Sep 17 - Sep 19
The 2017 Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) Summit will gather 400 energy buyers, service providers, developers, financiers, non-profit organizations and utilities in Santa Clara, CA, to identify opportunities to accelerate procurement of renewable energy. The two-day interactive summit organized by REBA and hosted ahead of VERGE 17 will focus on the fast-growing market for utility-scale renewable energy transactions.
The second annual REBA Summit aims to build a community, share challenges and advance partnerships around renewable energy procurement. REBA’s goal is to deploy 60 GW of new renewable energy capacity by 2025, growing the total amount of non-hydro renewables on the U.S. grid by more than 50 percent, from 107 GW in 2015.
REBA is led by four non-profit organizations that combine deep expertise in transforming energy markets: BSR’s Future of Internet Power, Rocky Mountain Institute’s Business Renewables Center, World Resources Institute’s Charge Initiative, and World Wildlife Fund’s Corporate Renewable Energy Buyers’ Principles (also supported by World Resources Institute). Collectively, REBA works with more than 100 iconic, multinational companies that represent enormous demand for renewable power.
