New power for your business

Green power purchase agreements – the energy supply of the future

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.

Supply your business with the energy of the future.

Two pairs of hands hold some soil together from which a green sprout grows. Green power purchase agreements help make businesses more sustainable.

More sustainability

Green power purchase agreements can be become a building block of your business strategy. The long-term contracts guarantee a supply with green electricity at a fixed price. This helps even companies with a high energy consumption achieve their climate targets.

Good for the image

Customers, investors and other stakeholders are also interested in how sustainable your company operates. This means that corporate PPAs increase your company’s attractiveness for providers of capital. International investors like Allianz SE and Union Invest for example, announced in 2018 that they will no longer invest in coal based businesses.
