    Spotlight | Procuring Renewable Power at Global Scale: What should buyers and suppliers do?

    Power & Renewables
    As corporations globally take on climate and sustainability targets, the sourcing of clean power at a rapid pace and across many markets becomes a business priority for both these large energy consumers and their suppliers. Yet, the options available for corporate energy procurement vary across regions, corporate requirements (in terms of volumes, reporting and more) and time as the broader power markets evolve too. What role do corporations play in driving the energy transition? How are their energy suppliers and governments helping them become actors of change? What new risks and opportunities does the current economic and energy crisis create for corporations and their energy sector partners? How do corporations navigate a global energy procurement landscape full of evolving regulations, new contractual structures, data opacity, language barriers and other challenges?
