The FiRe winner “Business Resource Center (BRC)” launched by the Rocky Mountains Institute (RMI) hosted its kick-off event on 3 November in New York. With over 60 participants ranging from Fortune 500 corporations, project developers to service providers and non-profit organizations, the event was a tremendous success and marks the starting point for further activities of the BRC in coming months. The next workshop will take place in San Francisco on 13 May 2015.

The BRC aims to educate, engage and support non-energy companies in the procurement of renewable energy by offering navigation, networking and standardisation services.
