Green Economy Group is a social enterprise company committed to ending climate change by reducing global temperatures to zero degrees Celsius (0° C) above pre-industrial levels and reducing the carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere to the 280 parts per million level during the 10,000 years prior to the Industrial Revolution.
As a technology company with a social enterprise mission, Green Economy Group intends to deliver on this vision of a global net-zero economy powered 100 percent by renewables by serving – through the Terawatt Exchange and other initiatives – as a catalyst for making the annual multi-trillion dollar investments required to achieve this goal. An initial milestone on this path is the Ceres clean trillion initiative.
The Terawatt Exchange (TWX) is designed for five key audiences:
- marketing, sales, finance, engineering and business development professionals in technology and service providers that are looking to identify project development firms and cleantech companies to sell their products and services to.
- executives in utility firms and green independent power producers exploring partnership opportunities with project development companies and cleantech firms.
- buyers in global corporations interestested in entering into green corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with project development firms.
- investors conducting market research and due diligence to assess competitive forces, industry dynamics, major growth drivers, key risks and potential investment opportunities.
- policymakers assessing the growth and scale of the 42 sectors of the green economy across countries and regions to develop and implement policies and incentives designed to deliver on net-zero national, regional, and global objectives.
