The Renewable Energy Association is a trade association for the (overall) renewables industry in the UK. The REA is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. The REA is primarily funded from member subscriptions.
The REA was established in 2001, not-for-profit trade association, to represent British renewable energy producers and promote the use of renewable energy in the UK.
The Renewable Energy Association has been criticised for encouraging reliance on large non renewable energy company members including the operators of Drax power station and Eggborough power station and lobbying to expand the use of food crops as biofuels including palm oil and soya.
