WASHINGTON (May 12, 2016) — Four non-governmental organizations have formed the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA), a new coalition to empower multinational companies to transform electricity systems with renewable energy. REBA aims to help facilitate and deploy 60 gigawatts (GWs) of new corporate renewable energy in the United States by 2025.
REBA is led by Business for Social Responsibility, Rocky Mountain Institute, World Resources Institute and World Wildlife Fund. Over 60 companies are members of one or more of REBA’s initiatives.
The contribution created a Chair for Renewable Energy at the institute, a Washington D.C.-based global non-profit organization that promotes sustainable policy and investment focusing on climate, food, energy, forests, water and sustainable cities.
The chair is filled by Letha Tawney, also director of utility innovation at WRI. Continue reading here.
