In 2022, the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) is proudly celebrating its 20th anniversary.

For more than two decades, ACORE has sought to unite finance, policy, and technology to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy. Since ACORE’s founding in 2001, over 260 gigawatts of renewable energy have been deployed in the United States and the renewable energy sector has attracted approximately $600 billion in private investment. Along the way, ACORE has earned its sterling reputation as a focal point for collaborative advocacy across the renewable energy sector by hosting best-in-class events, producing high-quality research, and providing top-tier services to our members. The scientific consensus is clear that we must redouble our efforts to transition to a renewable energy economy to prevent a climate catastrophe, and ACORE is well-positioned to play a central role in this work. Join us this year as we celebrate 20 years of extraordinary growth and look ahead to further progress!
