Press release from: Renewable Energy Markets Association

WASINGTON, October 27, 2011 - Illustrating its voice and breadth in the renewable energy markets, the Renewable Energy Markets Association (REMA) today welcomed its newest member, EDP Renewables North America (EDPR NA). Based in Houston, TX, EDPR NA (formerly known as Horizon Wind Energy) develops, constructs, owns and operates wind farms throughout including over 20 wind farms across the United States. The addition of EDPR NA to REMA's membership represents two of the top three 'Managing Owners' of U.S. Wind Capacity, as reported by the American Wind Energy Association.

"For us, the decision to join REMA was straightforward: REMA is the industry advocate for renewable energy products and technologies nationwide, whether it is in Washington, D.C., or Washington State," said Erin Eckinrod, EDP Renewables NA's REC Marketing and Origination Manager. "In addition to their regulatory and legislative intelligence, REMA is continually working towards expanded voluntary and compliance markets and opportunities for clean, renewable energy technologies, and that is something EDP can get behind."

Formed in 2008, REMA represents the collective interests of both for-profit and nonprofit organizations that sell or promote renewable energy products through voluntary markets, including renewable technology, renewable electricity, and renewable energy certificates (RECs), to individuals, companies and institutions throughout North America. REMA's recent policy outreach has included promoting voluntary renewable energy purchases in California's cap and trade program, revising green power credits within the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program, providing voluntary market insight for NYSERDA, and marketing recommendations to the WindMade Label Program.

"EDP Renewables NA is a clean energy leader, and their participation in REMA bolsters our presence as the voice for the renewable energy markets," said Josh Lieberman, REMA General Manager. "When we open the markets and stimulate demand for green power, all aspects of the supply chain benefit, from technologies providers, through project developers like EDP Renewables NA, to green power marketers and utilities."
