About REBA

REBA’s Vision and Mission:

The Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) is an alliance of large clean energy buyers, developers, and service providers who, together with NGO partners, are unlocking the marketplace for all non-residential energy buyers to lead a rapid transition to a cleaner, prosperous, zero-carbon energy future. REBA’s vision is a resilient zero-carbon energy system where every organization has a viable, expedient, and cost-effective pathway to renewable energy.

REBA’s Theory of Change:

Large energy consumers have the buying power and collective voice to change markets, and they have a unique, critical role in driving a zero-carbon energy future. REBA offers these large energy buyers one organization to support them in planning and meeting their energy needs with clean, affordable renewable energy. Within this overarching theory of change, REBA:

· Provides transactional education and support to energy buyers

· Connects a U.S. and global network of renewable energy buyers

· Provides thought leadership

· Evolves markets through policy and advocacy

· Drives market and technology innovations

REBA’s members include over 300 companies, including over 180 large clean energy buyers, who, together, announced about 6.5GW of renewable energy deals in 2018, 100% of which included at least one REBA participant.

Our Brief History

The Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance was founded in 2014 by four prominent non-profit organizations—Business for Social Responsibility (BSR), Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), World Resources Institute (WRI), and World Wildlife Fund (WWF)—in collaboration with a group of leading corporate renewable energy buyers. In July 2018, the four NGOs have decided to spin out their respective US-based REBA initiatives to form the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance of today. For a short overview, visit:
