Renewable Energy Buyers Summit - Presented by Infocast

Take Your Renewable Energy Sourcing Capabilities to the Next Level

The 2nd Annual Renewable Energy Buyers Summit is an invitation-only event where renewable energy buyers gather with their peers and industry experts in an intimate meeting setting. The Executive Forum will facilitate advanced interactive discussions about renewable energy procurement best practices with their fellow corporate buyers, as well as get valuable insights from leading renewable energy experts.

The event is designed to meet the needs of both experienced buyers with larger loads and less experienced buyers with smaller loads.  For each group, the event will tap into the most sophisticated thinking about the sourcing solutions available to meet their needs.  It is the perfect opportunity to advance your renewable energy sourcing game plan and take your skills to the next level.  Your time will be well spent!

The participants at the first event in January 2018 were remarkably enthusiastic about the unique content and format of the meeting:

“I truly appreciate the open forum and information sharing from all participants.  As a buyer I did not feel hounded by sellers which is refreshing.  I made valuable contacts and learned enough about the market that I’m confident in pursuing options in 2018.”

                                                –Amy Aves, Senior Director, Real Estate Operations, Oracle

“The openness of all the participants to share information and experiences really made this conference worthwhile.  Insights shared from this conference have helped me to understand market dynamics that I would otherwise not have had.”

                                                –Shreya Patel, Sustainable Operations Manager, Unilver

“Very good conference. Well designed format that allows much information to be shared.  Good mix of diverse participants to cover all the areas of renewable purchases.”

                                                –Greg Paterson, Manager Global Energy and Environment, IBM
