Bird & Bird has published our updated report for 2018 on international Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (Corporate PPAs).

Large corporations are continuing to set the agenda for the growth of renewable energy across the globe. Corporations globally purchased 5.4 gigawatts of clean power directly from generators in 2017 under a Corporate PPA. Corporate PPAs enable corporate consumers to procure renewable power directly from renewable generators, without necessarily being co-located, and allows both corporate consumers and generators to take advantage of a range of economic, reputational and sustainability benefits.

This report looks at the main drivers behind the growth of Corporate PPAs, the threats and opportunities relevant to their deployment, strategies for how they can be implemented and provides an in depth analysis on the market for them in key jurisdictions across Western Europe, the Nordics and Asia-Pac.
