Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements (RPPAs)
Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements (Online Course)
Practical models and techniques for analyzing & structuring, drafting, and negotiating Renewable Energy PPAs for bankable green investments in today’s competitive energy markets
In the global marketplace of 2020s, both developed and developing economies urgently need to master the key techniques and models for transforming to renewable generation while strengthening the reliability of new energy markets and systems. These focus on adapting and negotiating the latest models for Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements (RE PPAs) and on rapidly attracting new private investments in renewable energy sources. Unlike past fossil-fuel based Independent Power Project (IPP) models that featured standardized take-or-pay contracts – today’s renewable energy markets demand more innovative incentives to attract RE supply, conform to RE generation availability, ensure power system reliability, as well as more attractive and sustainable mixtures of fuel sources. Government power sector strategies are now struggling to choose among different practical incentives for new private investments in the renewable technologies including solar energy, wind power, bio-mass incineration and mini-hydro investments.
This interactive 5-session workshop will provide clear explanations of the new models of Renewable Energy PPA risk allocation, of ensuring project bankability, of allowing RE generators to compete in energy markets and power pools. The practical models for RE investment credit enhancements will be demonstrated through a series of real case examples of RE PPA contracts, renewable project finance transactions, and competitive energy markets. Case Studies will include real examples from Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America.

- Applying Best Practices and Lessons Learned to Your Organisation’s Renewable Power Priorities
This online workshop features a dynamic combination of experiential exercises and practical case studies to reinforce the ability of participants to actually apply RE PPA analysis, structuring, and negotiation techniques to real transactions.
Case studies of renewable private power transactions will feature the real-world details of renewable power feasibility studies, tender documents, impact assessments, and especially power purchase agreements to provide participants with a first-hand understanding of the challenges of RE PPA transaction documentation.
Experiential exercises will place participants into the practical roles of key management decision-makers who not only need to analyze and understand RPPA investment proposals, but who have to negotiate practical RE PPA terms & clauses and to make real-world decisions on transactions. As a result of actively engaging in this workshop’s interactive methodology, you will be able to make practical decisions on renewable power transactions for your organization following the workshop’s completion.
We would like to customise the workshop based on your specific needs. Pre-Course Questionnaire will be sent prior to the workshop for analyse in advance and to be addressed during the course.
Upon the successful completion of this course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion bearing the signatures from both the Course Director and the Course Organiser. This Certificate will testify your endeavour and serve towards your professional advancement.
