The Green Ribbon Commission’s Renewable Energy Leadership Prize has spurred institutions to embrace the potential of renewable power.
The competition sponsored by the GRC with support from the Barr Foundation, spawned a variety of innovative approaches for large-scale adoption of renewable energy, demonstrating the Greater Boston area’s appetite for and readiness to lead the way toward a clean, sustainable energy future.
We are happy to announce PowerOptions, which won the GRC’s first-ever Renewable Energy Leadership Prize, will use its $100,000 contest award to enable Tufts University and Endicott College to benefit from 12 megawatts (MW) of wind energy for their campus facilities.
We also congratulate finalists A Better City and Boston University for their innovative projects moving forward and bringing in additional clean power to the region.
The Renewable Energy Purchasing network seeks to help GRC network participants advance their strategies for purchasing power with zero carbon content. The network meets regularly to share best practices among GRC network members.
