Sponsorship

For over two decades 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.

Now in its 22nd year, the annual Renewable Energy Markets (REM) conference continues to be the leading forum for the clean energy 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 using and growing markets for clean energy. Organized by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions and 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.

Sponsors receive wide coverage in print, electronic, and social media. In 2016 the conference website was seen by nearly 15,000 users, with over 43,000 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 the forum for major clean energy 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 all year long, as well as the REM 2017 mobile app. Your logo can be included in print media, including table tents, the conference program, and signage. REM 2017 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 2017 sponsor.
