Webinar: Why Aligning Renewable and Commodity Energy Purchases Makes Strategic Sense

The growth of renewable energy purchases whether it be on-site solar or off-site wind/solar power purchase agreements forces companies to think of their enterprise load needs 10 or up to 20 years into the future. While these PPAs deliver a more predictable pricing for energy over the long-haul, how should companies optimize their short-term procurement contracts for electricity or gas to meet the balance of their energy load needs? This webinar will explore ways for large energy users to align their commodity and renewable energy strategies to develop the best approach for structuring their commodity and renewable purchases to return the best value to the company’s bottom line.
