More than a dozen large industrial, commercial, and institutional energy users recently issued the Renewable Thermal Buyers’ Statement. The Buyers’ Statement is a project of the Renewable Thermal Collaborative (RTC), and serves as an invitation to market stakeholders to collaborate to increase and accelerate energy users’ access to cost-effective, responsibly-sourced, renewable and lower-carbon thermal energy solutions.
On Tuesday, April 2 at 2 pm ET, the RTC hosted a detailed discussion of the Renewable Thermal Buyers’ Statement and the important market barriers and opportunities it highlights.
Representatives from Cargill, L’Oréal USA, and the City of Philadelphia shared their perspectives as large thermal energy users and members of the RTC Steering Committee. The World Wildlife Fund discussed the critical importance of decarbonizing thermal energy use globally, as well as the value and effectiveness of market demand signals. The session included Q&A.
