The REBA Institute is a non-profit organization that leads transformational research and education to ensure all organizations have a viable, expedient, cost effective path to drive a resilient, zero-carbon energy system.
The Institute Strives to:
- Be a center-of-excellence for advancing research and development of innovative clean energy market solutions
- Provide educational opportunities for the public-at-large in an effort to expedite the implementation of best practices in the renewable energy market
- Research and evaluate the application of clean energy market solutions by large energy customers to further the development and implementation of business structures, regulations and technological advancements
The REBA Institute is a 501(C)3 that was created alongside the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) in 2020. REBA and the REBA Institute were created by four of the leading environmental NGOs including, the World Wildlife Fund, BSR (formerly the Business for Social Responsibility), the Rocky Mountain Institute, and the World Resources Institute.
These NGOs, together with a small group of energy buyers, first met in 2013 to discuss the best ways to leverage clean energy demands and have worked collaboratively to advance a common mission. In 2018, REBA was founded. REBA currently brings together more than 200 members who span the globe and work toward a resilient, zero-carbon energy future. The REBA Institute leads renewable energy research and analysis, and provides pathways for advancing the industry while also providing energy customers with the insight and information they need to lead the way.
