Event Description

Purchased electricity is typically a building’s single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. Drops in costs of renewable energy over the past decade have made renewables competitive against brown power in many scenarios.

Three property owners will describe three different renewable energy solutions:

1) University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign will review its large-scale onsite solar program, comprised of multiple multi-megawatt ground mount solar arrays;

2) McDonald’s will discuss their portfolio of large offsite power purchase agreements as well as local restaurant-based solutions; and

3) Loyola University Chicago will describe a novel approach to sleeving an offsite power purchase agreement into a retail-delivered energy supply contract.

Successful implementation of these varied strategies required guidance from renewable energy advisors to evaluate multiple options. Each institution will describe how they determined the best fit solution by leveraging market intelligence, analyzing economics and risks, and engaging numerous internal stakeholders.
