ePPAs are long-term offtake agreements for companies looking to meet renewable energy targets while leaving underlying electricity purchase contracts untouched.

By establishing offtake agreements with specific renewable plants, ePPA enables organisations to demonstrate their long-term commitment to local renewable energy transitions in a tangible way.

ePPA+ goes further, establishing offtake agreements with projects yet-to-reach financial close to enable buyers to make a material contribution to financing for newbuild renewable power plants.
