Renewable energy procurement
Securing electricity supply from renewable energy sources enables corporations to reduce the impact that their physical operations have on the environment. A Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA) enables businesses to source electricity directly from low-carbon generators, while giving generators a reliable, guaranteed buyer for their electricity at a stable price.
We have been working on CPPAs across the globe for years, acting for sellers, buyers and lenders.
We have leading market experience in key markets such as the United States, Europe and Australia. We are also at the forefront of the development of these transactions in new markets such as Latin America, Asia and Africa.
