Panel Discussion

PPAs are an ever-changing and ever-evolving beast with no two agreements ever being the same. This is especially evident during the current market volatility of increased and changing power prices. Many PPAs are long-term fixed price deals, meaning offtakers don’t pay extra when energy prices increase which can further squeeze asset owners’ margins.

Despite high prices, corporate PPAs are still in high demand as offtakers want secure, long-term, cheap energy – find out how to best position yourself to optimise returns in this new market.
