Our flexible PPAs can allow businesses to get a discount on wider prices and drive down energy costs. Investors are like risk managers. They aim to optimize their risk/return ratio. For them, the conclusion of long-term AAE contracts is a way to manage the risk of volatility. Prices in electricity markets are extremely volatile, as they can change very often (every 5 to 30 minutes). Many companies use financial PPAs to access green electricity, including Microsoft, Unilever, Equinix, Mars, Incorporated and Iron Mountain Information Management. An electricity supply contract is a long-term electricity supply contract between an operator (seller) and an electricity customer (buyer). The buyer can be an intermediary or an energy supplier or a large direct industrial consumer such as a computer company that needs renewable energy for its computing centers. Agreements are usually signed for up to 10 years, but short-term AAEs are also possible.

The industry`s usual practice is to use an average monthly price forecast as a benchmark for setting the KKA price. This approach is weakening because the real price, which is covered by the market, is influenced by a number of dynamic risks related to weather insecurity, systemic imbalances and cannibalization effects. We offer a quantitative assessment of future market risks, well beyond an average standard electricity price. This assessment helps buyers and sellers obtain a significant price for electricity, ensuring optimal coverage under an AAE. Energy markets are volatile. AAEs can block electricity prices, reduce the risk of market fluctuations and ensure long-term fiscal security. These are examples of this type of PPP that are listed below. AAEs have been subdivided into AAEs that are more relevant to smaller and more rural energy projects, and more complex AAEs, relevant to large projects in developing countries.
Electricity producers enter into AAEs either bilaterally with a consumer company (“Corporate PPA”) or with an electricity distributor who purchases the electricity generated (“Merchant PPA”).
