Corporations today are facing a myriad of energy challenges and pressures from customers, the market, regulations and shareholders. Buying power the traditional way is becoming a more expensive endeavor, especially when factoring in high demand charges. The U.S. is poised to enact the first nationwide regulation of carbon pollution of power plants, with the Clean Power Plan (CPP) due to be finalized in June, leading to the retirement of old carbon power plants. At the State-level, nearly 30 states have Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) or RPS variants with binding renewable energy targets. Corporate customers are progressively choosing companies with robust renewable energy and sustainability initiatives. Companies who continue to buy electricity the traditional way are likely to face ever rising grid prices, and customer defection to competitors with more substantial green credibility.
However, corporations are not willing to pay a green premium for renewable energy. Projects must be price competitive with traditional forms of power, meaning that in most cases renewable energy acquisition must be delivered at cost parity or better. Renewable energy prices are now competitive or better in a number of states thanks to decreasing renewable energy technology costs, and a number of federal, state and local incentives available for renewable energy and GHG emissions reductions investments. Leading commercial and industrial companies like CBRE, General Motors, Google, JLL, MGM Resorts, Prologis, and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. have realized significant business value by executing effective renewable energy strategies, and the time is right to design an energy system that fits your needs, increases energy independence, locks in long-term costs and keep your customers happy. But what are the best options for your facilities and operations? If it’s on-site generation, which distributed energy and energy management options are ideal and do you need energy storage? If you need more power than that, who do you need to work with, what power options are available and what kind of PPA should you pursue?
Infocast’s Renewable Energy Strategies for Commercial & Industrial End-Users will bring together early-adopting corporate end-users, leading renewable developers, and financiers to outline the business case of developing and buying renewable energy. Commercial & industrial customers, utilities, distributed energy, energy storage, microgrid, and energy management technology providers will hear the wants and technical needs of customers who are looking at investing in renewable energy projects and power to reduce long-term operating costs, hedge against energy market volatility, and enable greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions and sustainability goals.
