  • The Rise of the European Corporate Renewable PPA Market

    Europe Corporate PPA small

    /12th June 2019, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Worldwide, renewable energy producers are entering into power purchase agreements (PPAs) with corporate entities thanks to the falling price of renewable power. Companies from diverse geographies and industries in Europe are entering this market at a rapid pace, according to the recently published study ’Europe Corporate Renewable PPA Market Report 2018 ÷ 2027’. To accelerate the deployment of renewable energy capacity, corporate energy buyers, and renewable energy suppliers have to explore the benefits and risks associated with entering the corporate PPA market. The size and frequency of deals have increased quickly in recent years, and over 14 GW of corporate renewable PPAs have been signed worldwide to date. Furthermore, corporate procurement of renewable energy is making a sizeable contribution to energy and climate objectives. In the EU, this business model has yet to live up to its potential compared to other regions of the world, particularly the US, where corporate procurement of renewable energy during 2018 represents over 8.5 GW.
