GROWING THE RENEWABLE ENERGY ECONOMY
More renewable energy in the UK means less reliance on energy imports, more jobs and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
REA was established in 2001 as a not-for-profit trade association, representing British renewable energy producers and promoting the use of renewable energy in the UK. REA helps our members build commercially and environmentally sustainable businesses whilst increasing the contribution of renewable energy to the UK’s electricity, heat, transport and green gas needs.
The REA’s mission is 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. We undertake policy development and provide input to government departments, agencies, regulators, NGOs and others.
REA’s corporate membership consists of around 950 companies ranging from sole traders, farmers, installers, energy suppliers, consultancy firms, legal services, major multinationals, organics recyclers and composters. REA is the only UK trade body representing the full range of renewable technologies across all applications. The Solar Trade Association is affiliated to the REA.
