About the RE-Source Platform
The RE-Source Platform is a European alliance of stakeholders representing clean energy buyers and suppliers for corporate renewable energy sourcing. This platform pools resources and coordinates activities to promote a better framework for corporate renewable energy sourcing at EU and national level.
The potential for corporate sourcing of renewable energy in Europe is significant and largely untapped. This is the first and only multi-stakeholder platform in Europe bringing together the interests of both buyers and sellers, to unlock the potential of a new and promising financing stream for renewable energies.
- Influence EU and national renewable energy and energy market legislation: the Platform will coordinate and align advocacy strategies. It will also define and implement possible common outreach initiatives at EU level and in member states with high potential
- Raise awareness and educate all stakeholders on the advantages of sourcing renewable energy and the huge untapped opportunity
- Centralise and disseminate information on renewable energy sourcing
- Provide business opportunities: connecting renewable energy buyers and sellers
- Deliver an annual “RE-Source” experience: bring together key players from the energy sector, corporates and governments at the annual RE-Source event
