GROWING THE RENEWABLE ENERGY ECONOMY
More renewable energy in the UK means less reliance on energy imports, more jobs and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
The 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. The REA helps its 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 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. REA is the only UK trade body representing the full range of renewable technologies across all applications. The Wood Heat Association is affiliated to the REA
