Award-winning firm will offer consulting and brokerage services to reporting corporations
BOULDER, Colo., Apr. 26 /CSRwire/ – Renewable Choice Energy announced today that it has joined global NGO CDP as its exclusive North American Partner for renewable energy consulting and broker services for offsite clean power, including renewable energy credits (RECs), carbon offsets, and long-term renewable energy purchasing contracts such as power purchase agreements (PPAs).
The partnership provides an outstanding opportunity for Renewable Choice and CDP to advance the adoption of clean energy among large purchasers such as the S&P 500. Growth in this market sector has steadily been on the rise; over the past several years, corporate, industrial, and institutional (C&I) buyers have been responsible for bringing more than 5,000 megawatts (MW) of new wind and solar power onto the U.S. grid. Renewable Choice has consulted on more than 1,000 MW of this total and is one of only a handful of U.S. firms advising corporations on offsite renewables.
“We are excited to welcome Renewable Choice Energy to the CDP network as a North American Renewable Energy Partner,” said Paul Robins, Head of Partnerships at CDP. “Renewable Choice Energy’s expertise in renewable energy consulting and brokering will be of great benefit to the companies in our network seeking to employ renewable energy solutions as they move towards a low carbon future.”
Renewable Choice began its rise as a leading green power supplier in 2006, when it helped Whole Foods Market become 100% wind powered. At the time, the historic deal was the largest corporate purchase of renewable energy. The company has since worked with thousands of global companies to help achieve their economic and environmental goals and began advising clients on long-term renewable energy contracting in 2011. The company was recognized by the EPA as the Green Power Supplier of the Year in 2012, 2014, and 2015, and is a certified B Corporation.
“We are delighted with the opportunity to collaborate with CDP as its exclusive North American offsite renewable energy partner,” said John Powers, VP of Strategic Renewables at Renewable Choice. “The partnership will enable us to reach more organizations that are looking to use renewables to meet their energy or environmental goals, and to help further the aims of CDP in the reduction of carbon emissions and prevention of climate change.”
CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the global system for companies, cities, states and regions to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. CDP, voted the number one climate research provider by investors, works with 827 institutional investors with assets of US$100 trillion, to motivate companies to disclose their impacts on the environment and natural resources and to take action to reduce them.
