Tracking Renewable Energy Purchasing Options

The “U.S. Renewable Energy Map: A Guide for Corporate Buyers” is an interactive map that reveals where buyers can access the renewable energy they want at the scale they need through their utility.

The map tracks renewable energy purchasing options in different states, including green tariff programs and other utility renewable energy products. Buyers use the map to inform decisions on where to site new facilities, prioritize their renewable energy purchasing strategies, and ultimately meet their clean energy goals. Recognizing the growing demand for renewable energy, states and their utilities use the map to compete for economic development by showcasing available renewable energy products.

The map also compares each product to the Corporate Renewable Energy Buyers’ Principles and includes details from WRI’s Emerging Green Tariffs in US Regulated Electricity Markets publication.

The Technical Note describes the scope and analytical methodology for the renewable energy options identified in the map.
