Through its wide-ranging and innovative Buyers Toolkit and popular annual event for energy buyers and sellers, RE-Source seeks to remove barriers for corporates to renewable energy procurement in support of Europe’s climate and energy goals.

We believe that corporate electricity buyers, renewable energy suppliers and policy-makers have a unique opportunity to help Europe achieve its climate and energy objectives by enabling new, competitively-priced renewable energy resources at a scale not otherwise achievable.
