Our Vision

A resilient zero-carbon energy system where every organization has a viable, expedient, and cost-effective pathway to renewable energy.

Our History

One REBA for Buyers and Suppliers

REBA started with a simple idea: organizations should have one place to go for planning and meeting energy needs with clean, affordable renewable energy.

In 2018, four leading NGOS — Rocky Mountain Institute, World Wildlife Fund, World Resources Institute, and Business for Social Responsibility — merged their renewable energy programs, the Business Renewables Center, the Future of Internet Power, the Buyers Principles, and Green Tariff programs. This programmatic consolidation builds upon their collective success and offers a single streamlined solution.

Today's REBA seeks to grow the market for end-user backed renewables from dozens to thousands of organizations nationwide, while advocating for an energy system that meets the needs of all.

“REBA offers a very streamlined way to affect the change we want to see in the marketplace—which is increasing and scaling the number of organizations that are procuring renewable energy. REBA's new structure will help accelerate that growth and bring more corporate buyers into the fold—providing more education and more collaboration.”

Our Mission

REBA is an alliance of large clean energy buyers, energy providers, and service providers that, together with NGO partners, are unlocking the marketplace for all nonresidential energy buyers to lead a rapid transition to a cleaner, prosperous, zero-carbon energy future.

Since 2014, the REBA community has grown to over 200 large energy buyers, and over 150 clean energy providers and service providers. Participants in the REBA community have been a part of 95% of all large-scale US corporate renewable energy deals to date.

With dedicated expertise from four successful nonprofit programs that have helped organizations break through barriers in renewable energy procurement in recent years, REBA’s goal is to catalyze 60 gigawatts (GW) of new renewable energy by 2025, and expand the number of organizations buying clean power from dozens today to tens of thousands.

“The sustainability professionals who are charged with implementing the carbon reduction programs in their organization have very little help and it's usually not their day job. So they need all the help they can get in order to actually map out a course for doing these kinds of deals. REBA events are so important to them.”
