BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 21 /CSRwire/ - Renewable Choice Energy announced today that it will join the inaugural Companies vs. Climate Change conference as a sponsor. The event is the first of its kind, bringing together companies with the express purpose of talking about how to solve the climate crisis. The event is being held in Ft. Lauderdale, Nov 30-Dec 2.
Renewable Choice is a pioneer in the corporate & industrial renewable energy and clean tech market. Launched in 2001, the company has served more than 160 of the Fortune 500 to help them achieve their economic and environmental goals using renewable energy. Since 2011, the company has supported the addition of more than 1,000 MW of new wind and solar to the U.S. grid via corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs). Renewable Choice is the exclusive North American partner to CDP for offsite renewables and has been the recipient of numerous awards from the Environmental Protection Agency for its role in expanding the market for corporate renewables.
“The Companies v. Climate Change conference comes at a critical juncture,” said Amy Haddon, VP of Communications & Engagement for Renewable Choice. “Corporations are becoming keenly aware of the threats posed to their performance by climate change. They are eager to develop and adopt solutions like clean technology. We’re pleased to be part of this important event.”
In 2015, corporate purchasers contracted for over 50% of the new wind and solar capacity in the U.S. for a total of more than 3,000 MW. Thanks to the extension of the wind Production Tax Credit and solar Investment Tax Credit at the end of 2015, ever increasing numbers of corporate buyers are expected to take advantage of both onsite and offsite renewable energy. These corporations have also made significant public commitments to renewables, carbon reduction, and climate action via the RE100, the American Business Act on Climate Pledge, and WWF’s Corporate Buyers Principles, among others.
“Companies are not waiting for government to act on climate,” said Haddon. “Instead, they are part of a grassroots groundswell that is happening all over the world.”
