Direct procurement of renewable energy and renewable energy certificates by corporates is receiving a significant amount of attention around the world.
The trend is gathering momentum in Australia, as the market drivers begin to overcome the existing barriers and challenges. One of the key challenges in bringing corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs) to the Australian market has been a lack of information or knowledge as to how to structure and price such PPAs.
Baker McKenzie has prepared Green Hedging: A Guide to Structuring Corporate Renewable PPAs with support from WWF Australia and the New South Wales Office of Environment and Heritage. Aimed at decision makers, the report outlines the fundamentals of Corporate PPAs and unpacks the type of structures available in the Australian market. It also considers both the opportunities these arrangements can offer, as well as the current challenges in bringing them to fruition.
