All over the world rethinking is taking place, this is not only indicated by the Climate Agreement of Paris. In addition, 67 per cent of the 250 biggest companies worldwide have set climate targets for themselves (source: "The road ahead. The KPMG Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting 2017"). However, in order to achieve those targets, green energy plants for approximately 770 billion euros per year would be needed. New business models such as green PPAs could play a key role in this context (source: IRENA, “Rethinking Energy 2017”).
These long-term contracts are considered an innovation on the energy market and are increasingly in demand. The members of the RE100 initiative, including companies like Ikea and SwissRE, want to achieve a 100 per cent supply with energy from renewable sources. Many of them have entered into green PPAs to reach that target.
We at innogy support businesses in these endeavours and develop tailored concepts for the energy supply of the future.

“Green PPAs help businesses take control of their energy supply”
Corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs) are fully on trend: after all, the long-term electricity contracts do not just help drive the energy transition. They also bring economic benefits to businesses. PPA expert Weero Koster knows exactly where the potential lies and that this trend can develop into something really big. The legal expert advocates this innovative business model and advises businesses and governments.
Projects for the future
Some companies have already entered into green PPAs.
They can be set up in many different ways and can be flexibly adapted to the individual requirements of different businesses.
