Several large C&I customers have formed the Advanced Energy Buyers Group, described as, "a collection of large energy users seeking to expand access to energy that is secure, clean, and affordable," with the goal of, "elevating the voice of advanced energy purchasers on policy issues that impact access to advanced energy."
"The Advanced Energy Buyers Group brings together corporate leaders committed to changing the policy landscape to increase opportunities for purchasing renewable energy and other advanced energy resources," the group said
The group said that in many markets across the country, policies and regulations must be brought up to date to allow companies to reach the goals they have set. "The Advanced Energy Buyers Group will work toward policy solutions that make it easier for companies to pursue advanced energy solutions like wind power, fuel cells, demand response, energy storage, hydropower, solar, and more," the group said
Founding members of the Advanced Energy Buyers Group include Walmart, Salesforce, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, Amazon, and Aligned Energy.
Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) will facilitate the work of the new group.
