World Bank Makes Green Power Purchase

January 2005 - The World Bank announced that it will purchase renewable energy to meet 100% of the electricity needs of its Washington D.C. office. Under an agreement with Maryland-based WindCurrent, the Bank will purchase 85 million kWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs) for one year sourced from wind energy facilities located in the mid-Atlantic and the Midwest. The Bank's renewable energy commitment is part of an overall "Greening Program" established by its General Services Department to focus on sustainable development within the organization.
