What is the Business Renewables Buying Group?

The Business Renewables Buying Group is designed to bring together a group of like-minded businesses seeking to switch to 100% renewable electricity. With the support of an external facilitator, the group will work collectively to scale up their buying power whilst cutting complexity, time, and cost associated with going 100% renewable.  

The Business Renewable Buying Group is open to businesses across Victoria consuming over 500mWh per annum of electricity (spending ~$100,000 per annum).

Through the Business Renewables Buying Group, we are striving to build and refine this model and create a repeatable and scalable group purchasing method to support more businesses to join a renewable future.  

Why join the Business Renewables Buying group?

  • Improved market response for your businesses, with more options and potential price benefits due to increased load  
  • Ability to work with others who are going through similar decisions to compare considerations and support each other 
  • Reduced project costs and staff time by spreading the workload across the group  
  • An experienced facilitator leads the process with access to specialist strategic advice

What are the benefits for your business?

  • Long-term and stable pricing provides budget certainty and reduces exposure to energy market volatility  
  • Avoid repeated internal procurement processes over the duration of the PPA contract

This project is supported by Brimbank City Council, and will be available to all Victorian businesses who qualify for the large electricity market. In the event the group is over-subscribed, preference will be given to the larger electricity consumers.
