Company Background

IREC, formed in 1982 as a non-profit organization, supports market-oriented services targeted at education, coordination, procurement, the adoption and implementation of uniform guidelines and standards, workforce development, and consumer protection.

IREC's mission is to accelerate the sustainable utilization of renewable energy sources and technologies in and through state and local government and community activities.

IREC focuses on some of the current and often difficult issues impacting expanded renewable energy use such as rules that support renewable energy and distributed resources in a restructured market, connecting small-scale renewables to the utility grid, developing quality credentials that indicate a level of knowledge and skills competency for renewable energy professionals, and getting the right information to the right people.

IREC's members include state energy offices, city energy offices, other municipal and state agencies, national laboratories, solar and renewable organizations and companies, and individual members. In addition, IREC works with many partners including the federal government, national environmental and municipal organizations, regulatory commissions, state-appointed consumer representatives, energy service providers, utility groups, universities and research institutes.
