An information hub and membership platform that will simplify, streamline and accelerate corporate purchasing of large-scale wind and solar energy and storage. It is an independent place for energy buyers, developers and service providers to connect.

A not-for-profit initiative of Climate-KIC Australia, WWF-Australia’s Renewable Energy Buyers Forum and the Institute for Sustainable Futures (UTS). The BRC-A will be supported by funding from Australian Governments over the next 3 years.

Why does brc-a exist?

More Australian organisations are seeking energy price security through fixed pricing (corporate Power Purchasing Agreements or ‘PPAs’). Many have set ambitious renewable energy or carbon reduction targets, such as via the RE100. Attractive prices exist, however corporate PPAs remain a challenge to negotiate, requiring an in-depth understanding of the energy market, the opportunity and industry players. BRC-A will draw from the knowledge and experience of Australian industry and the Business Renewables Center (USA), which has already helped major global organisations to procure 11,080 MW of renewable energy since 2014.
