About Us

Building Our Renewable Energy Future:
Clean, Sustainable, Secure

Who We Are
REV is a nonprofit, nonpartisan trade association representing nearly 300 businesses, individuals, colleges and others committed to reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and expanding the availability of renewable sources of power in Vermont. Our membership is continually broadening, reflecting a shared perspective that renewable energy is the best solution building a clean, sustainable and secure energy future. Vermont has a history of innovative and independent leadership, and we believe our state can become a national beacon of change and renewal through renewable energy. We invite all to explore the world of renewable energy on our website, sign up for our free newsletter, and Join us as REV Members.

What We Do:
REV works across a spectrum of activities to advance and grow reliance on our own renewable energy. We strengthen Vermont renewable energy businesses by building business networks and partnerships, and providing professional development, training and support. We push for state energy policies that promote increased, affordable, and comprehensive renewable energy, and represent renewable energy at Public Service Board proceedings. We engage in outreach and education about the benefits of renewable energy, hold biannual conferences and tradeshows, publish a monthly newsletter and provide a deep online, and on-call, resource for Vermont-specific information on renewable energy. We talk to Vermonters and citizens around the New England region everyday — feel free to give us a call, write an email, or stop by our Montpelier office.

Making Progress
Since REV was founded in 2001, we’ve seen the growth of renewable energy in Vermont, and we’re happy to report that things are looking better than ever. REV has played a central role in the development of renewable energy in Vermont, from passing “Standard Offer Program” and the Renewable Energy Bill legislation, to holding the largest ongoing renewable energy conference and tradeshow in Vermont for nine years and counting. REV lobby efforts have enabled renewable energy technologies, projects, and jobs to become increasingly competitive and accessible. REV installer accreditation Partnership Program helps guide nascent businesses towards a higher bar of accountability and quality. Twice each year, REV conferences bring new ideas and hard work together, connecting industry professionals and interested citizens alike for generative discussion, networking and learning. REV works across many channels, and we hope to reach even more businesses and individuals with our new website.

Please take a look and offer us your feedback, we want to work for you!
