A commitment to rural communities, businesses and jobs has positioned Renewable Energy Solutions at the forefront of locally-led energy capacity and economic development. From isolated counties in Eastern Oregon, to remote villages in Eastern Kazakhstan, RES team members have worked with local leaders, entrepreneurs and organizations to identify opportunities and access best-fit technologies to meet basic needs and income potentials.
The triple challenges of natural resource conservation, job creation and small business development are in many ways similar in rural locations everywhere. RES works closely with stakeholders to craft operations, policies and collaborations which contribute to revenues while promoting resource stewardship. Renewable energy is often a keystone to these efforts, supporting health, sanitation, education and opportunity.
Years before the concept of an “energy economy” was coined, RES personnel were engaged at the local and policy levels creating projects, programs and policieswhich simultaneously provided benefits to people and place. RES has served most recently as the renewable energy/business facilitation lead on international projects in Kazakhstan and Malawi, as well as contract work for individuals, companies, organizations and municipalities across the United States.
Business and entrepreneurial development is a common component of RES activity. Identifying potentials, market linkages, organizational structure, financing and management have shaped manufacturing companies with millions of dollars of annual sales, as well as farmer partnerships to adding value to commodities produced by their farms and ranches. .
A useful reference on the Energy Economy is a June 2009 report published by the Pew Charitable Trust titled “The Clean Energy Economy” (www.pewtrusts.org).
