Renewable Market Watch™ published a new report titled 'Europe Corporate Renewable PPA Market Report - Industry Analysis, Deal Tracking, PPA Prices, Growth, Investment Volume, Comparative Country Ranks, Share, Size, Trends, and Forecast 2024 – 2033'

Europe Corporate PPA small

/LONDON, January 29, 2024, 09:00 GMT, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The European corporate renewable PPA market has proliferated by an almost seven-fold increase from 2016 until 2023. EU energy ministers agreed at the end of November 2022 on the content of a Council Regulation for a temporary framework to accelerate the permit-granting process and the deployment of renewable energy projects. The European Institutions have agreed in 2023 on a revised text of the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED III), which should help further speed up permitting for new and repowered renewable energy projects. Reducing permitting burdens shall contribute to corporate PPAs, which is essential for the European Union (EU) to achieve energy independence and its REPowerEU targets. Many companies use corporate PPAs to hedge against unpredictable energy prices, reveals the recently published study Europe Corporate Renewable PPA Market Report 2024÷2033. Amazon, Google, Alcoa, Norsk Hydro, BASF, Bayer and Microsoft are among the key players in the market. This report provides further evidence that faster corporate PPA deployment would support transitioning to a European climate-neutral society and be beneficial economically.
