Convening for Change in the U.S. Electricity Sector

In the United States, WRI convenes an action-oriented group of member companies focused on expanding supply options for large-scale renewable energy purchasing in partnership with utilities.

Organizing Buyers

Since 2013, leading corporate players have collaborated with WRI to create innovative renewable energy tariffs and transactions. The impact has been dramatic with momentum growing in more than a dozen states today.

WRI members engage with utilities, regulators and Governor’s offices in priority states to achieve renewable energy supply goals and overall greening of the grid.

Developing Business Models

WRI members shape the future of renewable energy products (i.e. tariffs) that utilities are motivated to offer commercial and industrial buyers in priority states/regions.

WRI members team with our experts to deploy proven business and regulatory models which can be replicated across the country.

Sharing Strategies

WRI amplifies the buyer voice through a well-coordinated communications and outreach strategy that engages members and leverage the group's impact.

The clean energy team works closely with Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) partners to create a high-impact annual event and offer opportunities for communications across a broad network of clean energy professionals. The alliance is committed to delivering 60 GW of additional renewable energy in the U.S. by 2025.
