Opening session – Corporate sourcing: Win, Win, Win
The corporate sourcing of renewable power is a triple opportunity:
Our opening session will set the scene and explore the corporate sourcing challenges and opportunities in Europe, which is now starting to expand to new countries like Bulgaria and Poland, and new sectors like chemicals, pharmaceuticals, retail and IT. This much needed expansion is a key goal of the RE-Source event and platform, which seeks to raise awareness, educate and unlock the enormous opportunities on offer.

|14:00 – 15:30||
Corporate sourcing strategies and business models
Driven by the efforts of leading global corporations, the sourcing of renewable energy such as solar and wind is becoming a major trend worldwide. Corporate buyers & clean energy suppliers have joined forces through the RE-Source Platform to raise awareness and promote a better framework for corporate renewable energy to unlock the market in Europe.
|15:30 – 16:00||Coffee break|
|16:00 – 17:30||
Markets and regulation: the good, the bad and the ugly
Recently, Europe has witnessed an uptick in the corporate sourcing of renewables. However, this trend has broadly been concentrated in Scandinavia, the Netherlands and the UK.
Identifying which are the main regulatory challenges holding back the expansion of corporate sourcing in the rest of Europe and working on the policy adjustments that could be done to stimulate a rapid scale-up of power sourcing activities is crucial to expand this to other markets.
There are examples of very good regulatory best practice in this area, but also some not so good examples. During this session we will bring experiences from several European countries, putting together recommendations for a consistent, credible and streamlined approach to accelerate corporate sourcing.
