Acheive your energy ambitions

It’s great to get new investment, accelerate projects and reduce energy costs. With a more flexible and bespoke EDF Energy Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) you can.

How your PPA is structured can make a big difference to whether or not you hit your business targets. If you’re serious about increasing your renewable energy generation or improving the return on your investment, we can offer you the right PPA to achieve your goals.

We’re helping some of the largest generators grow even bigger.

1. Get funding for new projects

1. Get funding for new projects

The right PPA can help you secure investment for new projects. A PPA shows finance providers that you have a buyer for your output. With proof your project can pay its way, it’s easier to attract investors.

Just ask industrial chemical and gas supplier company Air Products. With an EDF Energy PPA they were able to agree a 20-year contract with Crown Commercial Services to finance a planned £300m plant to generate energy from waste.

2. Accelerate new projects

2. Accelerate new projects

Get new projects commissioned faster with the right PPA. Having a credit-worthy buyer like EDF Energy reduces risk during the feasibility phase. Having a PPA in place on the day that the contracts for land tenancy, grid connection and funding are due to be signed, reduces your risk at the project’s financial closure – the step before construction begins.  

Specialist renewable energy developer, Low Carbon Limited, used an EDF Energy PPA to help accelerate their plan for five new solar farms, reducing lead times and project risks.

3. Reduce energy costs

The right PPA can help you use the electricity you’re exporting to the grid from some sites to reduce your energy costs at your other sites that are importing electricity from the grid. 

We helped a recycling and waste management company reduce its exposure to wholesale market price movements with a PPA that accounted for its exports and imports so the company avoided the bid-offer spread in its energy prices.

Set a hedging strategy for better returns

How should you sell your power to get the best return? Well, that depends on many factors, including:

  • How consistently you’re generating power
  • How much power you’re generating
  • How many installations you operate
  • How your projects are financed
  • What your investors’ expectations are
  • How much experience and resource you have to spend managing your power sales
  • How you anticipate the market will perform.
