The U.S. Partnership for Renewable Energy Finance (US PREF) is a coalition of senior level financiers who invest in all sectors of the energy industry, including renewable energy. PREF members meet with policymakers to provide their perspectives on how renewable energy finance policies affect the market, and how proposed policies could affect the market. US PREF is not a lobbying organization or an advisory committee to government, rather it is an educational program that provides expert input on how the renewable energy finance market works.


  • Provide data and analysis, from the perspective of leading executives in the investment community, on how renewable energy finance policies affect the market.
  • Educate the public sector to assure renewable energy finance legislation impacts the market as efficiently and effectively as possible.
  • Help to unlock capital flows to renewable energy projects in the United States.

By accomplishing these objectives, US PREF has been successful in establishing its reputation as a highly valuable, credible, and unique educational resource in Washington.


PREF Days: Members convene in Washington DC to maintain an ongoing dialogue with Administration officials, members of Congress and their staff, and other government officials involved in developing policy.

Research and Analysis: Members author white papers that provide detailed information on how the renewable energy finance market works, and that analyze how specific policies affect the market.

Strategy sessions: Members host bi-monthly teleconference meetings that focus on new
developments in the market, including proposed and existing legislation and overall program strategy and direction.

Testimony on the Hill: When requested, PREF members provide testimony before a committee or subcommittee of Congress, or submit testimony for inclusion on the public
record of a hearing.

Responses: Official Responses are provided upon request to public officials or other policymakers to address specific questions that have been raised during PREF Day meetings in Washington DC.
