Event Overview

Part of the global REFF series that includes REFF-Wall St, the nation’s largest annual event for renewable energy finance, REFF-West has been uniting senior financiers, investors and clean energy executives from across the US each year since 2008.

Covering a range of renewable and clean energy technologies, with a particular focus on developments in the Western US, topics covered at REFF-West include project financing, venture capital, renewable power generation, emerging commercial technologies, financing smaller projects, equity financing and established technologies. The conference also offers an unparalleled networking opportunity, allowing you to meet senior representatives from both the energy and financial sectors who are focusing on renewables and clean technologies.

REFF-West built on the success of REFF-Wall Street, which takes place annually in New York in June and attracted over 700 participants. It is co-organized by the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) and Euromoney Energy Events.
