U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Green Power Partnership (GPP)

The free Webinar discussed aggregating demand for green power. Through the aggregation of power purchases, buying groups are able to purchase electricity and green power at reduced rates by lowering transaction costs and leveraging their purchasing power. Aggregations can take several forms, such as aggregating purchases with other local governments and/or businesses or through a community choice model.

During this Webinar, participants learned:

  • The steps necessary to form a successful purchasing group
  • The ideal characteristics of a successful aggregator
  • The benefits of purchasing aggregations
  • Strategies for incorporating green power into the group's purchase
  • Potential hurdles and roadblocks
