Cross border PPAs

Topic 1

When: Thursday, 3 October 2019, 9:00 - 10:30

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.
