- Powers Verdani’s Proprietary Renewable Energy Market Impact (REMI) Tool with Key Energy Data to Identify Building-specific and Portfolio-wide Renewable Energy Opportunities
Carlsbad, CA and Fairfield, NJ – November 14, 2023 – Verdani Partners, a leading provider of sustainability and ESG management services for the commercial real estate (CRE) industry, and Transparent Energy, the national leader in auction-based energy procurement for renewable and traditional energy, today announced a strategic partnership that streamlines how large CRE firms execute procurement of offsite renewable energy in support of their decarbonization and net zero goals.
As part of the strategic collaboration, upon request, Transparent Energy will provide Verdani clients with process augmentation for renewable energy procurement, including the purchase of Renewable Asset-Backed Retail (ABR) contracts, VPPAs, and national and state-specific RECs. Transparent Energy will also provide Verdani extensive data on traditional and renewable energy markets to power the company’s advanced Renewable Energy Market Impact (REMI) tool, which enables Verdani and its commercial real estate clients to view available renewable energy products and pricing by location across a portfolio of holdings.
“Verdani and Transparent Energy represent two sides of the same sustainability coin,” said Daniele Horton, Founder and CEO of Verdani. “While Verdani works closely with our commercial real estate clients to develop, manage, and measure progress against their decarbonization roadmaps and ESG programs, Transparent Energy excels in procuring the offsite renewables needed to make progress towards these goals. Both our companies have built large and loyal customer bases, and we are both involved with ULI Greenprint. Transparent Energy is a ULI Innovation Partner, and both firms are committed to accelerating decarbonization of the built environment.”
Added Dustin Scarpa, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Transparent Energy: “Verdani has built an impressive ESG consultancy with deep relationships and widespread adoption in the CRE space, and we’ve long admired the partner-first approach and integrity that mark their work. Together, we can help commercial real estate owners navigate the complexities of buying offsite renewables and other energy products anywhere in the U.S., providing a one-two punch that helps CRE execute their sustainability plans quickly, confidently, and affordably.”
