CFR President and CEO Gary Farha understands the value of a nuanced and strategic approach to renewable energy procurement, advice he shared as part of last month’s Business Officer magazine cover story, “Breezy and Bright.”
Recent years have seen large-scale renewable energy (LSRE) emerge as a high-impact tool for businesses to cut overhead costs while building sustainability credentials and future corporate resiliency. But to capture the full range of benefits associated with LSRE means “embracing your CBO role” — thinking critically about current and future institutional needs when selecting the optimal renewable energy mix.
Ultimately these questions lead to understanding how you can layer more renewable energy into your overall supply portfolio in a smart way, since any solution you seek should be as good as or better than what you currently have in place…There is no singular philosophy, approach, or project type. – CFR President Gary Farha
