A Statement from REBA’s CEO, Miranda Ballentine


The Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) looks forward to working with the Biden Administration on supporting progress toward a zero-carbon energy future. The administration’s call for carbon-free power production by 2035 and net-zero emissions for new buildings by 2030 comes at a critical time when climate action isn’t just necessary, it’s vital.

Renewable energy is a leading solution in building back better and combatting the economic, societal and climate crises our country faces today. REBA’s members, who make up the world’s largest energy buyers, remain steadfast in their commitment to renewable energy advancement and advocating for complimentary policies that expand opportunities to decarbonize the power grid.

The REBA membership represents a market cap of $3.8 trillion of energy buyers demanding access to renewable energy to power their operations and facilities. Market demand supported a record rise in clean energy investments in 2019 up 28% to $55.5 billion highlighting the opportunity to leverage renewable energy as a path to well-paying jobs, economic growth, and to recovery for hard hit communities.

REBA is resolute in creating a thriving, equitable, and globally competitive clean energy economy that combats the climate crisis and pursues environmental justice.
