What We Do
The Business Renewables Center (BRC) is a member-based platform that streamlines and accelerates corporate purchasing of off-site, large-scale wind and solar energy.
Nearly two-thirds of Fortune 100 and nearly half of Fortune 500 companies have set ambitious renewable energy or related sustainability targets. While renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) can be novel and complex, they present a fast and effective way for large companies to fulfill their sustainability targets. The BRC helps corporations unlock this tremendous opportunity.
BRC members collectively embody the know-how of the industry—they were involved in 85% of corporate renewables deals in 2015. Our 160+ members include major corporations, leading renewable energy project developers, and transaction intermediaries.
Our Tools and Resources
The BRC makes it easier for corporations to enter the renewable energy market by sharing the hard-earned lessons of the first movers. We publish primers and guides on such topics as PPA accounting and deal structures, and host semiannual conferences to bring veteran renewable purchasers and deal makers together with those who are exploring the opportunity. These tools help first-time buyers up the learning curve so that they successfully complete their first deals faster, easier, and better.
For long-term members, we provide access to ongoing market intelligence through the BRC Marketplace and Deal Tracker, our semiannual conferences and webinars, market insight reports, blogs and newsletters, webinars, and more.
We are growing rapidly, as is corporate renewable power purchasing, and we invite you to join us.
