This report summarises the work undertaken to establish the Business Renewables Centre – Australia (BRC-A). The BRC-A is a resource centre and marketplace platform, supported by events and training to facilitate Australian organisations to increase their use of renewable energy through Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).
The Project has established the first Business Renewables Centre in Australia (BRC-A) – an online resource centre and marketplace platform, supported by events and training to facilitate Australian organisations (particularly commercial and industrial energy users) to increase their utilisation of renewable energy through Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).
A Corporate PPA is a long-term contract between a corporate (or government) energy buyer organisation and renewable energy supplier (developer or retailer) for the provision of renewable electricity and /or the corresponding renewable energy certificates generated (large-scale generation certificates or LGCs).
The BRC-A was built on the partnership between WWF Australia’s Renewable Energy Buyers Forum (REBF) and the US Business Renewable Center (Rocky Mountain Institute, now branded the Clean Energy Buyers Alliance (CEBA)).
