BRC: Business Renewables Center

We aim to help corporations procure 60 gigawatts of renewable energy by 2030.

How Corporate Renewable Deals Get Done

Since launching in 2015, the BRC has helped more than 200 companies complete more than 7,000 MW of renewable energy deals. Learn how

What Is the Business Renewables Center?

The Business Renewables Center (BRC) is a membership platform that streamlines and accelerates corporate purchasing of off-site, large-scale wind and solar energy.

Why It Matters

Nearly two-thirds of Fortune 100 and nearly half of Fortune 500 companies have set ambitious renewable energy targets. The BRC helps corporations unlock the tremendous opportunity to scale up and reduce the transactional complexity of renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs).

Who’s Involved

BRC members collectively embody the know-how of the industry—they have been involved in 94 percent of corporate renewables deals since 2015. Our 200+ members include major corporations, leading renewable energy project developers, and transaction intermediaries.
