Sponsorship

For over 20 years, Renewable Energy Markets has attracted the most influential companies and individuals working in clean energy.

When you become a REM sponsor, your organization gets the right exposure in front of the right audience.

For over 20 years the annual Renewable Energy Markets (REM) conference continues to be the leading forum for the clean energy and carbon marketplace. REM remains the only conference of its kind focusing on national and international markets for renewable energy, attracting participants from around the globe who share an interest in and commitment to promoting clean energy. Organized by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions and co-sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, this annual meeting of clean energy and carbon-market stakeholders includes generators, marketers, utility representatives, purchasers, NGOs, policymakers, and regional stakeholders, who together set the industry's agenda for the year to come.

As a sponsor you will receive wide coverage in print, electronic, and social media. In 2014 the conference website was seen by nearly 11,000 unique visitors, with nearly 35,000 page views overall. The conference receives heavy media attention, as does the annual Green Power Leadership Awards, which are held during the conference. REM is traditionally the forum for major announcements and publication releases from cities, government agencies, and large companies. Last year stories were published in leading news outlets from journalists who attended, along with many references in blogs, industry websites, and sustainability-focused news aggregators.

As a sponsor, your logo with a link to your website will be prominently featured on the conference homepage (not buried on a “sponsor” page) all year long. Your logo can be included in print media, including announcement postcards, table tents, the conference program, and signage. REM 2016 will be promoted heavily with social media, including Facebook, Twitter, a dedicated group in LinkedIn, and other online media.

Don’t miss this opportunity to position yourself as a renewable energy leader while promoting your corporate social and environmental initiatives by becoming a REM sponsor.
