ARE, the Alliance for Renewable Energy, with a focus on North America, is an alliance of policymakers, renewable energy experts, citizens, research institutions, and large and small businesses that came together in the Spring of 2008. Our goal is to rapidly increase the shift from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy. Our strategy is to create awareness of and build support for ‘the world’s most effective renewable energy policies’—Feed-In Tariffs (FITs).

Members of ARE - Businesses, non-profit organizations, individuals and students have joined ARE in its mission to promote REPs. If you are interested in joining ARE, please visit the "Join ARE" page.

ARE Steering Committee, Advisory Board, and Staff - The Steering Committee is made up energy experts, academics, policy makers, and renewable energy leaders in businesses, non-profit organizations, and research institutes. It is co-chaired by Lois Barber and Paul Gipe. The Advisory Committee provides valuable insights and information. The Staff keep it all running smoothly.More info at
