Are Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) right for your organisation?


South Pole's half-day corporate PPA workshop


Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) can help corporates mitigate price risk and translate carbon reduction commitments into tangible green energy investments. They also, however, present new complexities and a range of risks which need to be fully understood, mitigated, or reallocated. Educating colleagues internally and building senior-level buy-in is vital for project success but can also be challenging.

This workshop helps you establish if PPAs are right for your organisation by addressing three main questions:

How do PPAs work?

Understand the requirements of contracting via a PPA, from contract and pricing structures, to risk mitigation and other Term Sheet considerations.

Output: A broad understanding of Corporate PPAs and whether they could be utilised as part of your procurement strategy

Is a PPA right for my business?

We explore the position of buyers and sellers in a PPA transaction and the potential trade offs between price and risk allocation. We then examine your existing procurement and CSR strategies, project specifications, risk appetite and minimum requirements to consider how a PPA may or may not align with them.

Output: A deeper understanding of any key risk areas requiring further assessment

What would my PPA roadmap look like?

From needs analysis to final contract negotiation; we focus on how to build the business case for senior level buy-in and effectively source the most suitable, risk aligned, cost-competitive PPA.

Output: A project and risk evaluation matrix which can be used for bid evaluation in future market engagements

The workshop objectives were crystal clear and the knowledgeable trainers delivered on them. We left with a much clearer understanding of the procurement and operational risks associated with PPAs.
