  • Corporate Renewables 2020 Launches, 100% round table event focussed on Corporate PPAs

    Corporate renewable 2020 small size

    /7th November 2019, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Shareholders, employees, customers and a wide range of stakeholders require corporate businesses to show a tangible, impactful commitment to renewable energy. As global energy usage and needs are re-defined by these groups, corporates are increasingly focused on reducing their environmental footprint and securing lower energy costs. Corporate PPAs enable companies to achieve their carbon emission reduction goals and are gaining momentum globally. This brings us to launch Corporate renewables 2020 in London, March 11-12. The size and frequency of deals have increased quickly in recent years to more complex and innovative buyer consortia, VFA and proxy swap agreements. However, in Europe, the business model for PPAs is yet to reach its potential. The total volume of corporate renewable PPAs signed in Europe in 2018 amassed to 1.9 GW while in the States it reached 8.5 GW. Corporate Renewables 2020 is not a conference or a summit. The event delivers a series of curated networking experiences designed to help you to assess the economic viability of corporate renewable PPAs, learn about innovative deal structures and understand how they can be applicable to your company. 

  • Europe Corporate Renewable PPA Future Market Development, Trends and Opportunities

    Europe Corporate PPA 2019 2028 small

    /19th November 2019, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Worldwide, renewable energy generators are entering into power purchase agreements (PPAs) with corporations, due to the falling price of renewable power. Furthermore, electricity markets are changing and around the world electricity regulation is also changing to meet the requirements of the accelerating energy transition. Many government policies and regulations are moving in the direction of carbon emissions reduction, more liberalization, smart grids combined with greater flexibility and easier market access for end-users. The result is a combination of a stronger policy focus on environmental goals and reduced government control and supervision of national electricity markets. These trends have the potential to give consumers a greater role in electricity markets than ever before. Many government commitments in Europe to manage climate change can be met with the implementation of clean energy transition programs and with the support of corporate renewable PPA structures, reveals the recently published study ’Europe Corporate Renewable PPA Market Report 2019 ÷ 2028’. This study considers the whole array of options available to corporates looking to source renewable electricity in Europe. Despite the less developed corporate renewable PPAs market in Europe compared to the USA, the Renewable Market Watch™ predicts increased support and acceptance of the corporate renewable PPA model in European countries in the next decade.
