The 2017 Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) Summit will gather corporate buyers, service providers, developers, financiers, utilities, and nonprofit organizations in Santa Clara, California, September 17-19, 2017, ahead of GreenBiz Group’s VERGE 17 conference and expo, to identify opportunities to accelerate corporate procurement of renewable energy. The two-day interactive summit organized by REBA and hosted by GreenBiz Group 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 corporate renewable energy procurement. REBA’s goal is to deploy 60 gigawatts of new corporate 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 gigawatts in 2015.

REBA is led by BSR’s Future of Internet Power, Rocky Mountain Institute’s Business Renewables Center, World Resources Institute’s Charge Initiative, and World Wildlife Fund’s 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.

VERGE 17, September 19-21, 2017, focuses on the technologies and systems that accelerate sustainability solutions in a climate-constrained world. The three-day conference and expo convenes a diverse, cross-sector audience of more than 2,000 leaders representing the world’s largest companies, technology startups, energy producers and consumers, commercial real estate owners, and the public sector—creating a unique ecosystem focused on opportunities for business, the environment, and society.

Participation in the 2017 REBA Summit is by invitation-only for select corporate members and partners of REBA’s initiatives.
