Energy Solutions Overview

BEF Renewable Program logo

We have the tools to create a clean energy world. Let's build it together.

BEF Renewables serves as a strategic partner to advance creative solutions that deploy renewable energy at scale.

We’re a team of experienced thinkers and doers; we’re not afraid to dig deep with our partners to bring new funders to the table, make an unruly project pencil out, or demonstrate the potential in unproven ideas.

Who we serve:

We bring together utilities, county governments, and industry to build new clean energy pathways for cities, consumer-owned utilities, affordable housing organizations, nonprofits, rural communities, and tribal nations located in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

How we help:
  • Catalyze and scale impact. We bring together stakeholders and decision makers to transform big ideas into on-the-ground renewable energy projects.
  • Enhance access to capital. We’re helping partners identify, access, and leverage new sources of capital, including state, federal, philanthropic, or corporate grants.
  • Increase capacity and expertise. Our team provides technical expertise, including hiring engineers to ensure project installations are structurally sound; counsel on how to design or finance a project; and best practices for ongoing management.
  • Engage in renewable energy policy at the local, state, and federal levels.
