Resources and Tools

The following provides resources for large energy users considering purchases of wind or other renewable energy.

World Resources Institute. (2004). "Next Generation Green Power Products for Corporate Markets in North America." This installment of WRI's Corporate Guide to Green Power Markets focuses on the most effective, and cost-effective, ways for large electricity consumers to buy green power. These include purchases of nationally sourced RECs and two forms of long-term contracts with renewable generators that can be used to stabilize corporate energy costs or serve as a hedge against volatile electricity rates.

The Green Power Market Development Group (GPMDG) A collaboration of 12 leading corporations and the World Resources Institute dedicated to building corporate markets for 1,000 MW of new, cost-competitive green power by 2010. The group includes Alcoa Inc., Delphi Corporation, Dow, DuPont, FedEx Kinko's, General Motors, IBM, Interface, Johnson & Johnson, NatureWorks LLC, Pitney Bowes, and Staples. The GPMDG has developed analytical tools, guidelines for writing a solicitation, sample REC contracts, and corporate case studies, available on their Web site to facilitate corporate purchases of renewable energy.

EPA Green Power Partnership Provides assistance and recognition to organizations that demonstrate environmental leadership by choosing green power. The Web site includes information about green power definitions and purchases, details its partnership program, and provides recognition for leaders. Also see the EPA's Guide to Purchasing Green Power.
