Customer Renewables Initiative
Large institutional buyers are changing the energy landscape as we know it. In recent years, Fortune 500 companies and other large institutions, such as the military and colleges and universities, have begun to transform electricity markets by ramping up their purchases of renewable energy.
Beginning in 2014, DGA initiated a series of efforts to connect the massive shift in renewable energy markets led by large customers to a new set of state policy campaigns on customer choice. DGA identified this market trend early on and began working with diverse partners to develop customer choice policy campaigns designed to surpass the deployment of 60 gigawatts of additional renewable energy by 2025.
We work with companies, non-profits, and foundations to advance renewable energy choice policy for large customers
David Gardiner and Associates is renaming our Customer Revolution Project to the Customer Renewables Initiative. The new name reflects the massive shifts in U.S. renewable energy markets and the work underway to accelerate these markets.
David Gardiner reflects on his time at the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) Summit and GreenBiz’s VERGE conference.
Our webinar highlighted the major impact of large customers on renewable energy growth in 2017 and featured speakers from Microsoft, the American Wind Energy Association, and Solar Energy Industries Association.
