Power purchase agreements

Our EG&P team is working with the corporate sector to connect organisations to renewable energy sources and helping them realise both the environmental and economic benefits of power purchase agreements (PPA).

 

A renewable PPA is in simple terms a contract to buy power from a renewable source. Corporate buyers can purchase power and renewable energy certificates from a provider or energy generator, rather than a local or national utility, to enhance their green credentials. PPAs are a contract in which the buyer commits to buy the output of a renewable power project.

PPA market

As government subsidies decline and markets evolve, corporate PPAs will play an integral role in ensuring the continued growth of renewable power across Europe.

 

While Corporate PPAs foster environmental benefits and predictability of longer-term power costs, they can also introduce new risks and additional complexity requiring additional resources to manage. This is particularly true for organizations unfamiliar with project finance, construction contracts, volatile power markets or managing intermittent/un-matched supply contracts.
