The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) is a 501(c)(3) national nonprofit organization that unites finance, policy and technology to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy.

ACORE accomplishes much of its work by convening key stakeholders, facilitating partnerships, educating senior officials on important policies, publishing research and analysis on pressing issues, and undertaking strategic outreach on the policies and financial structures essential to renewable energy growth.

We are the focal point for collaborative advocacy across the renewable energy sector, supported by members spanning renewable energy technologies and constituencies, including developers, manufacturers, top financial institutions, major corporate renewable energy buyers, grid technology providers, utilities, professional service firms, academic institutions and allied nonprofit groups.

ACORE was founded in 2001 to bring together leading proponents from all sectors of the renewable energy sector for the purpose of moving renewable energy into the mainstream of America’s economy. As the first organization dedicated to expanding the U.S. pan-renewable economy, we have seen the deployment of over 260 gigawatts of renewable energy and the investment of approximately $600 billion since our founding. Our members are now responsible for over two-thirds of annual U.S. renewable energy capacity growth.

On an annual basis, ACORE convenes conferences in New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. focused on renewable energy policy, renewable energy financing and the electric grid – three major areas that shape and advance renewable energy innovation and development in America.
