Cross border PPAs: from idea to implementation

Main session

When: Thursday, 3 October 2019, 9:15 - 10:45
Where: 400 participants

Session description

As corporate renewable PPAs evolve and companies continue to innovate, cross-border PPAs are emerging as an option to supply company operations with renewable electricity generated in other markets. We’ve seen the first cross-border PPAs signed in Europe, and potential for both corporate buyers and energy suppliers is huge.

A cross-border PPA is a corporate renewable PPA between a corporate buyer and supplier where the energy supply point is in a different market or country to the demand point.

The session will bring perspectives from companies with practical experience setting up cross-border PPAs. It will be hosted by WBCSD to continue work in cross-border PPAs, and will be supported by MASEN, coordinators of the cross-border Sustainable Electricity Trade (SET) Roadmap initiative.
