OIA’s Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA) Aggregation CoLab is focused on helping Climate Action Corps member companies source renewable energy for operations in the U.S. and Canada through a Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA) aggregation. By bringing companies together and aggregating each company’s electricity load, we can create a large enough demand to spur the development of a large-scale renewable energy project that provides solar or wind-powered electricity at a competitive price. We seek to bring together Corps members to create a critical mass for a collaborative outdoor industry renewable energy project. This VPPA Aggregation CoLab can help Corps members to:
- Successfully implement a large-scale renewable energy project in the U.S.
- Realize significant and measurable scope 2 GHG emissions reductions (scope 2 GHG emissions = carbon emissions associated with the generation of electricity).
- Have measurable cost savings in procuring renewable energy.
