REBA Primers are meant for sustainability professionals at the start of their energy procurement journey, or those that want a refresher on a particular topic. Primers are one level deeper than an introductory 101-level overview and go beyond definitions of a complex concept or topic to include additional context through examples, REBA member insights, and relevant market-based information.

REBA Guides, also referred to as Roadmaps, are for more experienced sustainability professionals that have successfully completed as least one renewable energy procurement project. Guides and Roadmaps provide step-by-step guidance with detailed explanations of a process or topic related to renewable energy procurement. What’s unique about these products? Each is informed by experienced REBA member companies, peer organizations, and subject matter experts – and each resource includes insights only available to the REBA community.
