GWEC and RE100 join forces to accelerate corporate sourcing of renewable electricity in emerging markets

Published onMarch 19, 2020

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) is entering a new partnership with the Climate Group’s RE100 initiative to spur greater corporate commitment to renewable electricity sourcing in emerging markets. GWEC is the neutral representative body for the global wind industry, representing leading wind energy manufacturers, developers, utilities IPPs and service companies. RE100 brings together more than 200 global companies committed to 100% renewable power. There is strong matchmaking potential between the parties’ member companies on the demand and supply sides of wind energy. This will be particularly impactful in emerging and developing markets across Asia, Africa and Latin America, where many RE100 members have significant operations but limited options for sourcing renewables.
