Reviews from users of the Buyers Toolkit

5/5
"The RE-Source template CPPA was well-received by both sides and especially by RWE Renewables’ in-house legal advisors. It was the perfect starting point for the contracting phase and it saved us a lot of time. I'm happy to say that, thanks to this template, there was no need to make use of external law firms to draft a new agreement. Deviations from the template were also very limited during the contracting process. Our experience was therefore very positive and we expect it to use this template again for our next European PPA."

Template PPA contract

The EFET CPPA represents the first cross-country standard CPPA for Europe helping bring down transaction costs and facilitating the negotiation process between the parties involved. Before its endorsement by the EFET Legal Committee, the standard CPPA had been widely circulated across the industry and a number of lenders have confirmed its bankability.

The standard EFET CPPA allows for both physical and financial PPAs with the proven Election Sheet approach allowing for flexible tailoring of the PPA to the needs of the companies involved. The agreement is translated from English into other EU languages to ease its uptake across Europe, and will be supported by legal opinions in key jurisdictions.

Pexapark PPA Academies

The European PPA market is characterised with an estimated total utility and corporate long-term risk appetite of approximately 8-10 GW of new renewable capacity annually. PPAs are relatively complex, with numerous structures available and difficult to value. Our PPA experts will explain how to compare PPAs systematically and quantitatively.

Furthermore, to promote the rise in renewable energy investment and simplify transactions, a standardisation of PPA has been developed. The European Federation of Energy Traders (EFET) in close collaboration with Re-Source has published a standard PPA, the EFET standard Corporate Purchase Agreement (CPPA). Our PPA specialists will show how the standard can be applied for typical PPA use cases.

RE-Source Hubs

The renewable energy landscape of Europe is made up of a wide range of legislative and regulatory situations in each European country. The RE-Source Hubs are built to focus on the energy situation in different countries, bringing together relevant companies to tackle these national issues as well as bring together potential buyers and sellers of renewable energy in that country.

We currently work with national associations in Poland and Scandinavia, with more partnerships being arranged.
