Case study: PPAs for Renewable Energy Generation in Spain
Barriers, risks and benefits of PPAs with a special focus on the Spanish market
Spain is the best solar market for corporate power purchase agreements in Europe. The Spanish government has prepared two draft laws directed at energy-intensive industrial consumers to help them ease some of the burden of high costs of electricity through access to state aid, at the same time supporting renewables development through power purchase agreements (PPAs).To further spur renewables development, the ministry of industry has drafted a second law proposal seeking to create a EUR-600-million (USD 648.6m) reserve fund that will assume PPA risks associated with signing up a registered energy-intensive company as a client.

  • What are the regulatory changes in progress to reduce electricity supply cost for energy-intensive consumers and support renewable development via PPAs?
  • Main barriers for CPPAs development
  • Main risks from CPPA perspective
  • Recent PV solar CPPAs in Spain

  • General PPA market experience in Germany
  • PPA Deal with Lichtblick
  • Current development in Poland – utility and corporate experiences
PNE has concluded a first direct power purchase agreement (PPA) for a German wind farm. From December 31, 2020, thousands of wind power turbines in Germany will lose their entitlement to fixed EEG remuneration. Upon the conclusion of the PPA, two topics were particularly important to the contractual partners PNE AG and LichtBlick SE: Firstly, a sensible continuation of electricity production on the basis of secure continued operation, without immediate dismantling of the wind power turbines after the expiry of the EEG fixed remuneration.
