REBA Case Studies includes both legacy products developed through the Rocky Mountain Institute’s Business Renewables Center (BRC) and REBA Case Studies intended for sustainability professionals to learn about how peers have addressed market, company, or technical challenges during the procurement process. Each REBA Case Study is informed by in-depth insights from experienced energy buyers that have successfully procured renewable energy by leveraging an innovative pathway, or a particularly unique method.

The Aggregating Small Energy Demand case study is available to the public for a limited time.

In January 2019, five companies announced an innovative deal that pooled relatively small amounts of electricity demand to collectively procure 42.5 MW of output from a 100 MW solar power project in the Dominion Energy service territory in North Carolina. This cooperative, collaborative transaction demonstrates just one option from a growing collection of approaches for companies wishing to initiate or expand their renewable energy purchases and is a model for accessible projects for those companies that may lack choice due to size, location, or other factors.

The Aggregating Small Energy Demand Case Study details how the partnership came together, the process by which the project was negotiated, and suggests a path forward for other buyers considering aggregated energy purchasing deals.
