The higher education renewable energy market has grown dramatically in recent years as campus buyers have executed power purchase agreements (PPAs). But for all of the successes, two substantial obstacles are challenging further growth as many colleges and universities:
Are uncomfortable with the 15-20 year commitments required by most PPAs
Don’t have the energy demand to offtake 100+ megawatt (MW) projects
Until now, those organizations have been excluded from large renewables sourcing or have been faced with complicated, slow-moving aggregation projects. An innovative new model in renewables sourcing, PowerBloks™ squarely addresses those issues, opening the U.S. renewables market to new participants and providing experienced buyers a new flexibility as they build out their renewables portfolios.
Attend this important webinar to learn:
- Why these two major obstacles have prevented buyers from sourcing renewable energy
- How the innovative PowerBloks structure addresses these challenges
- How one buyer, Iron Mountain, has implemented a multi-element renewables portfolio
- How to identify renewables procurement options that will best meet your needs
Webinar attendees will also have the opportunity to have their questions answered by the presenters.

The idea of pooling resources to increase bargaining power is not new. But it is being newly applied to renewable energy purchases. Now, no matter the size or location of your institution, you can harness the benefits of a large-scale renewable energy solution. Join this webinar to understand the opportunity to team up with other organizations for an aggregated large-scale renewable energy procurement, allowing your institution to achieve step-change improvements in electricity cost reduction, price risk mitigation, and carbon emission reduction. Get insights from higher education leaders who are excited about sharing lessons learned from their renewables aggregation project during case a study presentation as well as audience Q&A.
