The European platform for corporate renewable energy sourcing

Brought to you by:

Renewable Energy Buyer’s Toolkit

Welcome to the RE-Source Buyers’ Toolkit.

The Toolkit has been developed to provide information, raise awareness and ultimately help you to enter the market for corporate sourcing of renewable electricity. The tools are designed to help unlock the huge potential for corporate sourcing of renewables and make a real impact for the transition to a low carbon society.

Below you will find:

All the tools are available free of charge.

Introduction to Corporate Sourcing report

Corporates are increasingly considering their impact on the environment and climate change. Consequently, they are seeking to reduce carbon emissions while controlling the costs associated with their electricity consumption.

Renewable energy procurement provides organisations with a means to power their operations with carbon-free electricity and secure low-cost electricity consumption over a long-time period

Corporate Sourcing Directory

The European Corporate Sourcing Directory sets out which models of corporate sourcing have been used and which models we believe are possible to use in each country, where the information is known.

The directory will be updated over time as we become aware of new sourcing contracts and where administrative barriers are removed.

If you have any information or disagree with any of the data, please contact us at [email protected]

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 will be supported by legal opinions in key jurisdictions, as well as translated from English into other EU languages to ease its uptake across Europe.

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.
