What we do

Power purchase agreements

Powering businesses with renewable enegy

Power purchase agreements (PPAs) can help businesses achieve sustainability goals and lock in long-term pricing for electricity, helping to manage the risk of volatile power markets and generate savings on energy bills.

A PPA is a contract between a seller and a buyer of electricity, usually long-term in nature and specifically regarding the sale and purchase of electricity from renewable sources.

Our team of experts have:

Over 90+ GW

Supported 5+ GW 

of green energy projects with PPAs

We've supported more than 25 corporates with their transition, to the tune of over 4.5 GW of energy; including structuring one of the world longest PPAs, as well as one of the world's largest.

We understand the importance of measuring the green impact of PPAs. That's why we use our proprietary methodology to provide a Carbon Score, quantifying the carbon benefits of the project supplying the energy. You can learn more about our green impact reporting methodology here.

The benefits of PPAs

Achieve sustainability goals

A PPA can move businesses closer to achieving carbon neutrality by lowering scope 2 emissions (emissions from the purchase of energy). PPA solutions can help with scope 3 (supply chain) emissions.

Increase control

Energy markets are volatile. PPAs can lock in power prices, reduce exposure to market fluctuations and provide long-term budget certainty. 

Flexible PPAs can also enable businesses to secure a discount on wider market prices, lowering energy spend.

Know the source of electricity

Renewable energy certificates, for example Guarantees of Origin (GoO) or other Renewable Energy Certificates track the source of renewable power.
