ACORE is committed to social and economic justice as part of the transition to a greener future, and is actively working to cultivate a culture of inclusion and equity within the renewable energy sector. Equitable representation is an important step to increasing the availability of affordable, pollution-free renewable energy for urban and rural communities. As part of the effort to achieve a more inclusive renewable energy sector, we are therefore seeking to build opportunities for smaller renewable energy companies owned and operated by women and/or people of color.

ACORE’s Accelerate membership program will provide a complimentary two-year membership to eligible organizations, including a Supporter-level membership, event access and special networking opportunities for Accelerate members. With ACORE’s complimentary membership, organizations will be provided with exclusive access to the most up-to-date industry developments and networking opportunities to expand their business reach.
