Corporate Renewable Power Purchase Agreements Scaling Up Globally

Corporate Renewable Power Purchase Agreements Scaling Up Globally

There is also a growing chance for companies to use PDOs as a flexible clean energy source. New technology platforms, such as that of our partner Zeigo, are well suited for companies looking for the security of long-term fixed prices and the flexibility of concluding multiple contracts for small amounts of electricity. A number of policy recommendations were made in the latest World Business Council Report on Sustainable Development (WBCSD), written by Norton Rose Fulbright in collaboration with EY and the WBCSD. We believe that it is essential that incentives for renewable energy are designed in such a way that they support the development of renewable energy projects at a lower cost, without, however, eliminating the drivers of a ECA model for companies. By ensuring that there is a place for corporate PPPs, it is possible to improve the speed and scale of project use in the field of renewable energy, while national or regional electricity markets are often diverse. IBM and HP Enterprise have committed to achieving 55% renewable energy by 2025, and Accenture has committed to renewing 100% renewable energy by 2023. The second type is called “sleeved” or “physical” PPAs. These often (but not always) include a direct AAA between the business buyer and the generator. As a rule, the buyer enters into related agreements (managed either by the buyer of the enterprise himself or through a distribution company) so that the purchased service can be used for the benefit of the company`s wider investment burden. In addition, France has the second largest wind potential in Europe and its onshore wind market is considered one of the most active and attractive markets on the continent.

In the UK, the general reduction in public subsidies, particularly in the photovoltaic and solar sector, has led many producers to turn to corporate GPPs to ensure long-term financing for renewable energy projects. Barry Gross, real estate partner at BCLP, believes that real estate investors can benefit greatly from employment in renewable PPAs: the mutual interest in long-term price security will be very relevant, with some markets removing subsidies for certain mature renewable energy technologies. Even though the cost reduction of one type of technology has allowed the prices of renewable installations to reach levels equal to grid prices, the need to guarantee the long-term turnover of electricity sales remains the key to banking capacity. . . .
