CA Companies Form Renewable Energy Buying Group

February 2008 - The World Resources Institute (WRI) announced that fourteen of California's largest energy users have joined together to form a group devoted to purchasing and developing new sources of renewable energy. The group, dubbed the California Affiliates of the Green Power Group, will share best practices and form innovative partnerships to support renewable energy development. The participating companies are: Advanced Micro Devices, Apple, BT Americas, Cisco Systems, eBay, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Intuit, Levi Strauss & Co., News Corp., Pactiv, Patagonia and Wal-Mart.

In 2000, WRI convened the U.S. Green Power Market Development Group, which together with its more recently formed European counterpart has facilitated the development of over 600 megawatts of renewable energy through on-site projects and green power purchases. The California Affiliates plan to build on this experience to bring corporate renewable energy purchasing to significant scale in California.
