Mr. De Ruyter referred to the offers made during the first and second phase of the independent electricity producer purchase program for independent energy. Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) work in many different contexts. They can be used to support the development of new projects or for the energy supply of existing projects. They can be written by independent electricity producers, governments or utilities. They can operate in regions where electricity exchanges and markets are sophisticated and they can also operate in developing countries with a single buyer and a centralized supplier of monopoly electricity. In the sessions of this course, we deal with each of these contexts. In Europe, we are the leading producer of renewable energy and a leading supplier of aerating contracts. We are owned by the Norwegian state and we have a solvency A. Statkraft offers sustainable green electricity solutions worldwide based on our 125 years of experience in the development, construction and operation of hydroelectric, solar and wind installations. AAEs are suitable for companies that want to buy renewable energy at competitive prices. These contracts are also called electricity supply agreements.

In this course of 15 modules delivered over 5 sessions, we first discuss the basics of energy purchase and the important concepts you need to understand to read, write and negotiate PPAs. After looking at the basics, we look at some of the components of the agreements and focus on those that are most often negotiated between electricity producers and electricity consumers. We are also looking at how the AAE integrates into the network of contracts for an energy development project and the interaction between the AAE and other contracts. There are many moving parts that influence the future of electricity generation in emerging countries. Unlike today`s independent power project models, which included standardized paid contracts, today`s market requires more innovative incentives to ensure better availability, better performance and more attractive and sustainable fuel source blends. There is an urgent need for the economies of all developing countries to master the key tools, models and lessons they have learned to transform and strengthen the current electricity sector. These include the latest models in the negotiation of power purhase agreements (ASA), the design and management of new competitive electricity markets, as well as obtaining the right mix of renewable energy sources. This course is not only about listening and learning, but about a very interactive and immersive experience.

As an independent training provider, the Green Power Academy offers an unbiased and unseeded look at the most important foundations of PPAs. In a briefing yesterday, Eskom CEO André de Ruyter said the distribution company had made progress in its operational stability, but would continue to seek a renegotiation of the tariffs of independent electricity producers. According to De Ruyter, the reliability maintenance project of the state-owned supply company has ensured a stable production of electricity. The head of Eskom indicated that the distribution company would try to renegotiate contracts to buy electricity, as they are not sustainable for the distribution company. De Ruyter added: « We have also turned to the market to get electricity from generators who can enter the grid. » « Catalysing energy business » The Conference of Independent Power Producers – Power Purchase Agreements will unpack the elements necessary to understand the structuring of an electricity purchase contract (AAE) with the necessary knowledge of the main characteristics of an AEA and the timing of use of a coincidence.
