Today companies around the world are increasingly committed to utilize renewable energy sources in the pathway towards decarbonization.

In April 2018, Renewable Energy Institute launched the Renewable Energy Users Network (RE-Users)  to serve as a platform to provide information for corporate users to accelerate renewable procurement in Japan.

As part of this activity, Renewable Energy Institute organized the “RE-Users Summit,” where representatives from corporations, NGOs, the government and research institutes from Europe, the United States and Japan were invited to present their efforts on promoting renewable energy procurement.
