The REA’s mission is grow the renewable energy economy and to bring renewables into the mainstream. The REA's main objective is to secure the best legislative and regulatory framework for expanding renewable energy production in the UK. The REA undertakes policy development and provides input to government departments, agencies, and regulators often working with NGOs and others.
The REA’s corporate membership consists of around 700 companies ranging from sole traders, farmers, installers, energy suppliers, service providers, major multinationals, project developers, manufacturers, organics recyclers and composters.
