A Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) is often characterised as a key driver for the green transition. But what is a PPA, and how does it work as a contract document within the green transition? A PPA is a power supply agreement between an investor/developer and a buyer on the purchase of a specific power production.

Green Dealflow has published the quarterly transaction review for the third quarter of 2022: the full dataset for solar and wind transactions closed in this period is available here. The content is a key tool to get a clear picture of the market by the country’s records on renewable energy. The reports are built by our
Given the increased investment costs due to raw material prices of photovoltaic and wind plants (capital-intensive capacity), it is increasingly advantageous for developers to sign PPAs, securing the projects´ bankability. In fact, it is convenient that the cash flow of a new big plant coming online is known in advance, otherwise, it will be more
The rush in wholesale prices of gas and electricity also drives up the average prices of long-term contracts (PPA) for renewable energy. Long-term power purchase agreements provide the assurance that the project will bring the expected return on investment upon completion, reducing the uncertainty of cash flow derived from the sale of energy on the
The European Council of October 2014 endorsed the proposal of the European Commission of May 2014 to extend the current 10% electric interconnectors target to 15% by 2030 while considering the cost factors and potential commercial exchanges in the relevant regions. How we produce and use energy relies heavily on interconnectors. Clean energy from renewable sources like

On July 14, the Senate renewed its confidence in the Government by definitively approving, in the text dismissed by the Chamber, the bill for the conversion, with modifications, of the Decree-Law no. 50 of
Here follow 6 questions Green Dealflow asked Enerpoly, an innovative company trying to put zinc-ion batteries on the table of energy storage technologies to foster the energy transition and diversify the need for critical minerals required for lithium-ion batteries. 1. What is the Enerpoly innovative perspective on zinc-ion energy storage? Enerpoly develops and manufactures zinc-ion
The Italian authority has published the formal general guidelines regarding agrivoltaics. This document was developed and published within a working group coordinated by the ministry of ecological transition – the department for energy and provides precise definitions of agrivoltaic systems, separating agrivoltaics from advanced agrivoltaics. Agrivoltaic plant is the one which: i) adopts innovative integrative

Energy storage is going to be one of the most important technologies in the shift toward clean energy systems. Because solar panels and wind turbines don´t operate continuously due to the intermittency of solar radiation and wind currents, the owner of these projects are forced to sell the electricity when these resources are available, and
