Helping you make sense of the energy and water sectors


PPA - Structures, Terms and Bankability

Over 30GW of renewables and flexible generation find their way to market via a Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). Although technologies as diverse as rooftop solar, fuelled peaking plants, and co-location of storage and generation have offtake arrangements to secure revenue, the PPA contracts are of a broadly similar structure. This new one-day training session explains key PPA terms, and their bankability and interaction with financing structures. Our in-depth knowledge of the offtake market is used to detail wholesale market, subsidy scheme and embedded benefit pricing structures and how these are typically reflected for different technologies.  We also explore the offtaker market by looking at the differing products on offer now and the emergence of corporate PPAs.

The day concludes with an appraisal of the prospects for the PPA market in the context of removal of subsidy for most new generation, the scale of generation capacity required to meet future system needs, and the outlook for wholesale prices.
